'Lost' star releases statement on robbery

Associated Press

Josh Holloway, who plays con man Sawyer on the ABC castaway drama "Lost," said today he was grateful to Honolulu police for their help after a reported armed robbery at his Hawaii Kai home.

But the actor who cuts a volatile, angry figure in the series had nothing to say about the robbery itself in a statement released by Touchstone Television. KHON-TV reported that he and his wife, Yessica, were held at gunpoint early yesterday morning by a man still at large.

"My family and I are fine and appreciate everyone's concerns and good thoughts," Holloway said in the statement. "We are very grateful for the help of the Honolulu Police Department and the support of the local community."

KHON reported that Holloway and his wife were rousted from bed. The robber took cash and credit cards and then drove off in Holloway's Mercedes-Benz, which was found abandoned a short time later, the station reported.

There was no indication the robber recognized the 36-year-old actor, KHON reported.

The Honolulu Police Department referred questions to the detective assigned to the case, who wasn't immediately available for comment.
