Police Search for Armed ATM Robber

by Minna Sugimoto 

PEARL CITY (KHNL) - We have some shocking surveillance video to show you. Honolulu police hope you can help them catch a man who robbed another man at an ATM in Pearl City last month.

An ATM is a quick way for bank customers to get cash. It can also be a quick way for a crook to do the same.

"Be aware of your surroundings," Sgt. Kim Capllonch, Crimestoppers, said. "Maybe go with a friend, you know, don't go alone."

It was a scary experience for one man outside the Hawaii National Bank on Kaahumanu Street last month.

We now have video from a surveillance camera. It shows the victim using the ATM. Suddenly, the man behind him pulls out a gun.

"He's standing behind the male," Capllonch said. "He doesn't have his hood on. So he's watching. As soon as the money comes out, his hood goes on and the gun comes out."

Police say the robber takes the victim's money, gets into a white Honda Accord and leaves the area.

The suspect is believed to be in his 20s.  He's 5'7" and weighs about 130 lbs. He was armed with a black revolver.

"They are getting very brave," Capllonch said. "Right, before you would just, it would be the physical force. But as times move on, the weapons are out there."

If you have any information about this case, call Crimestoppers at 955-8300. Calls to Crimestoppers are confidential.
