KALIHI VALLEY (KHNL)- A burglary turned home invasion in Kalihi Valley Thursday afternoon sends authorities in a search for the suspects.

One was believed to be spotted hours later after neighbors say he struck a man in the head and then stole his car.The men so far have managed to evade authorities.

Helicopter in the air, dogs and rifleman on the ground. Authorities are pulling out all the stops to catch suspects who forced their way into a Kalihi Valley home.

"Two men entered the residence they were armed with knives," said Honolulu Police Major Frank Fujii.

They held two females and a male captive, they assaulted him and then took off down the street.

"They weren't really running, but were walking really fast," said a witness.

Police say suspects hid in a mountainous area nearby. Authorities eventually found a man and brought him in for questioning, he might be a possible third suspect. But, a victim doesn't think he was one of the intruders.

"We went looking, but it's not them," a victim.

"Where do you think the two others might be?" asked reporter Zahid Arab.

"We're not sure, we're continuing to search," said Major Fujii.

Hours later after six one of the suspects strikes again, hitting a young man in the head with an iron bar.

"It was pretty bad, his forehead was cracked open on the front and down the back," said Witness Glenn Farquharson.

The suspect stole a green camry and peeled out. With their whereabouts unclear, all that's known for sure is that this case is far from closed.

That suspect in the green Camry still hasn't been spotted, neither has the other one on the loose. These men are dangerous. Both men are said to be in their 30's to 40's, about 5'6 to 5'8 inches tall and weigh between 140 and 160 pounds.

If you have any information about these individuals, don't approach them, contact Honolulu Police.
