Bank robber strikes again

A robber targeting in-store supermarket bank branches struck again Friday in Mo'ili'ili.

Bank of Hawaii's Star Markets branch at 2470 S. King St. was robbed at 3:40 p.m. by a man with a muscular build, who presented a note to a teller and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. The man fits the description of a suspect in three other in-store bank robberies since Sept. 28, police said.

On Oct. 31, the day before the robbery in Mo'ili'ili, a man with a colorful wig and face painted like a clown robbed American Savings Bank at Market City Foodland. The next day, he was dressed in a heavy jacket with a hood over a baseball cap and sunglasses.

ASB at Market City Foodland was also robbed on Sept. 28. The other robbery occurred Oct. 19 at Bank of Hawaii's Star Markets branch at Kamehameha Shopping Center.
