Crash victim was Kahuku woman

The city medical examiner's office has identified the woman killed Friday in a traffic collision on Kamehameha Highway near Waikane Store as Sue Ann Horibata, 56, of Kahuku.

Mother charged in baby's injuries

Police have charged a 19-year-old woman with critically injuring her 5-month-old son.

Ranalynn Tachibana was charged over the weekend with assault after doctors found her infant son had fractures to his skull, shoulder blade, elbow, forearm and ribs, police said.

The boy was taken Friday to Kahuku Hospital and transferred Saturday to Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children.

Bank branch robbed at Mo'ili'ili market

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

Bank of Hawaii's branch at Star Market 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. American Savings Bank's branch at Market City Foodland in Kapahulu has been hit twice — on Sept. 28 and again on Thursday — while the other robbery occurred at Bank of Hawaii's Star Market branch at Kamehameha Shopping Center on Oct. 19.

In the Thursday robbery on Halloween, the robber wore clown's face paint and a wig.

WAIMEA, Hawai'i — A 26-year-old Waimea man was charged with 23 offenses in connection with a stolen credit card. Samuel F. Torres was arrested Friday and released on $10,550 bail.

Police said they searched his house Thursday and found items purchased with a stolen credit card, and small amounts of drugs.
