A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of car theft yesterday morning after the car's owner saw it at a beach park in Ma'ili.

Police said the man who owns the car drove a different car to the beach about 10:40 a.m. and saw two people in the car that belongs to him. The car owner then used the car he was driving to block the access road leading back to Farrington Highway and called police.

The owner then led police officers to the stolen car, pointed out the man he saw driving the car earlier and watched as police arrested the man.

Roommate faces assault charge

A 25-year-old Kapolei man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault early yesterday morning after his roommate, 32, told police the younger man punched him in the face, fracturing a bone near his right eye.

The man who filed the report told police he had argued with his roommate and had a minor physical altercation with him earlier in the evening. The older man said he went out for a while and was assaulted when he returned home about 3:40 a.m.

Check-cashing attempt fails

A woman who persisted in trying to cash what turned out to be a stolen check was arrested in Mo'ili'ili yesterday morning on suspicion of forgery charges, police said.

Police said the woman approached a teller at a supermarket bank branch and tried to cash a check but was turned away because the woman did not have an account with the bank.

The teller became suspicious and contacted the account holder, a 72-year-old Pacific Heights man, who said the check had been stolen, police said.

They said the woman returned about 10 a.m. and tried a second time to cash the check. Patrol officers were sent to the bank and arrested the woman.

Cab driver says man pulled knife

A 20-year-old man was arrested early yesterday in response to a report filed by a cab driver who said he was robbed at knife-point about 11:15 p.m. Saturday.

The driver said one of the men pulled a knife and demanded to be taken to the Aston Waikiki Sunset hotel without paying.

The cab driver dropped the men off before notifying hotel security and police who located the man who allegedly threatened the driver. He was arrested on suspicion of first-degree robbery and kidnapping.
