Man accused of terrorizing apartments
Advertiser StaffA 37-year-old man was arrested last night after allegedly terrorizing several people at an apartment complex in Gentry Waipio.
Police said a 43-year-old woman who had been visiting a resident at the complex was walking back to her car when a man confronted her with a shirt wrapped around his hand.
The man told the woman he had a gun and took the woman's cell phone and car keys. He told the woman to get into the car with him, police said, but she refused.
The suspect then told her to go back to the apartment she had come from. The woman walked back to the apartment with the suspect following her and he tried to force his way in when the two reached the doorway, police said. The commotion awakened a man who lives at the apartment and he confronted the suspect, who then ran to another part of the complex, climbed up to a second-floor lanai and approached three men inside the second apartment.
He once again pretended to have a gun under his shirt and took a cell phone and cash from the second group of victims before running to a third apartment and entering through an unlocked door.
There, he demanded items from yet another man, took his car keys and ran from the apartment with the apartment resident in pursuit. The suspect threw down the car keys and kept running, police said.
Arriving officers spotted the suspect and were able to catch up with him at the corner of Pa'a'ono and Pa'awalu streets after a brief foot chase.
The suspect was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, robbery, burglary, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest.
