HONOLULU (KHNL) -- An Ewa Beach man wanted on suspicion of robbing two banks on January 2 turned himself into police Monday night.
33-year-old William Mara surrendered to the Honolulu Police Department's main station the same day a photo of him was released to the media.
Police say Mara tried to rob the Hawaii National Bank on Dillingham Boulevard but the teller was too afraid to give him any money and he walked out empty handed.
They say later that day, he struck again at American Savings Bank on Farrington Highway in Waipahu. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.
