Police Beat: Man suspected of kidnapping wife, baby

Advertiser Staff

A 25-year-old man was in police custody this morning after he allegedly kidnapped and assaulted his 19-year-old wife in Kapahulu last night and forced her into his car with their four-old-month son.

Police said the incident began when the estranged husband showed up at his wife's parent's home and assaulted her.

Police were told that after the woman was forced into the car, the husband stopped at a store so she could buy food for the baby. At that point, a witness saw the woman being beaten and called police.

Patrol officers responded quickly, and arrested the husband on suspicion of kidnapping, abuse of a family or household member and endangerment of a minor.

Suspect arrested for alleged assaults

A 30-year-old man was arrested in Wai'anae last night after a 42-year-old man told police the younger man beat him twice in a 22-hour period and threatened to kill him.

The man who filed the complaint said the other man, who he described as an acquaintance, forced him into a car at gunpoint about 12:01 a.m. yesterday. He said the man who abducted him drove him around for several hours and beat him before letting him go.

He said he did not report the first assault.

He said the same man saw him once more about 9:15 p.m. and assaulted him again.

The two assaults were reported at the Wai'anae Police Station and police arrested a man on McArthur Street a short time later on suspicion of kidnapping, terroristic threatening and assault.

Fight ends with man being struck by sheet metal

Police arrested a 35-year-old man at Kewalo Basin this morning after a 35-year-old man was injured during a fight.

Police were called and arrested the alleged assailant on suspicion of assault.

Man arrested trying cash counterfit traveler's checks

A 22-year-old Nu'uanu man was arrested yesterday after he allegedly tied to pass off photo copies 10 traveler's checks as the real thing.

Police said the man walked into a bank at 1099 Alakea Street about 9:30 a.m. and attempted to deposit the traveler's checks into his own account.

The teller was immediately suspicious and called a manager who called the company that issued the checks, police said.

The company told the bank the checks were counterfeit, police said, and officers were sent to the bank.

They arrested the man on suspicion of forgery.

Stolen checks lead to man's arrest

Police arrested a 41-year-old man at a Waipahu bank yesterday after he allegedly tried to cash two checks drawn on the account of a 67-year-old woman who asked the bank to close her account after her checks were stolen.

Police said the man entered the bank about 11 a.m. and submitted two checks.

The checks were made payable to the man who presented them to the teller and he produced a state identification card. The checks were made out for $800 and $1,000, police said.

The teller quickly noticed the checks had been made against a closed account and that the account holder had reported the checks stolen.

Police were called and the man was arrested on suspicion of forgery and attempted theft as he was trying to leave the bank. Police reported finding two other checks on the man, payable to himself for $1,000 and $1,200 dollars, which were drawn on a non-existent account at another bank.
