Standoff ends peacefully

Advertiser Staff

A barricade situation in Hawai'i Kai was resolved peacefully early this morning after a 46-year-old man turned himself in to police.

Members of the Police Department's Specialized Services Division (SWAT team) and crisis negotiators were sent to a home on Kekupua Street about 8:10 p.m. last night after a caller reported a man had barricaded himself in a home after arguing with his father and might have two females and firearms in the house with him.

Negotiators eventually made contact with the man, who was wanted for contempt of court and probation violation warrants, and convinced him to surrender about 2 a.m.

There were no injuries.

Man stabbed in the back with kitchen fork

A 39-year-old Whitmore Village man was taken to Wahiawa General Hospital in fair condition last night after a male friend attacked him with a large kitchen fork, police said.

The incident happened about 9:45 p.m. without provocation or warning when a 28-year-old neighbor began to stab the older man in the back with the fork, police said.

The alleged stabber left the area before police arrived but was arrested at his home a short time later for suspicion of second-degree assault.

Mall security catches robbery suspects

A 22-year-old woman told police she was robbed last night while walking through a parking lot at Kahala Mall.

The woman said two men approached her about 6:30 p.m. and demanded money while the other one grabbed her purse.

The robbery victim handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the two robbers ran away, police said.

Mall security officers caught the suspected robbers, ages 24 and 26, nearby and detained them until police arrived and arrested them for suspicion of second-degree robbery.
