Gas station robbed in Kane'ohe

Police today were searching for a man who robbed a Kane'ohe gas station last night.

They said a man asked for change at the ARCO gas station, 46-004 Kamehameha Highway, around 9:50 p.m. He then brandished a knife, took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register, and fled, police said.

Husband arrested in domestic fight

A Wahiawa couple's fight led to the arrest of the husband yesterday afternoon, police said.

The man, 23, allegedly slapped, kicked and punched his 20-year-old wife. Police said he held a knife and threatened to kill her.

The wife also grabbed a knife and cut his left arm during the assault, police said.

The man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening and domestic abuse.

Remote Schofield fire extinguished

A wildfire that burned about 230 acres in a remote area of Schofield Barracks was extinguished late yesterday by helicopter, an Army spokeswoman said today.

The fire, which began Saturday afternoon at the Wai'anae Mountain end of the Army's KR-6 Range, was in an area firefighters could not reach on foot, said Capt. Stacy Bathrick, spokeswoman for the 25th Infantry Division (Light) and U.S. Army Hawaii.

An Army Chinook and a Black Hawk helicopter were used, with help from a fire department helicopter, to douse the fire.

The range is used for training, but no one was using it when the fire started, Bathrick said.

Officers threatened by Makiki man

Police subdued a knife-wielding man in Makiki early yesterday.

Officers responding to a call around 5 a.m. of a man acting strangely on the 1600 block of Pi'ikoi Street arrived to find a man in a hallway brandishing a 20-inch knife. He yelled for the officers to shoot him and threatened to stab them. One officer wrestled the man to the ground and disarmed him.

He was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threatening, kidnapping, assault and domestic abuse.
