Schofield Barracks soldier arrested in Kahala store robbery
A 22-year-old Schofield Barracks soldier was arrested yesterday in connection with an early-morning robbery of a convenience store in Kahala.
An employee told police the man entered the store at 12:43 a.m., pulled out a knife, demanded cash and left.
At about 9 a.m., a patrol officer spotted a man in the area where the robbery took place. The clothing the man wearing was similar to that worn by the robber, police said.
The store employee later identified the man and he was arrested on suspicion of first-degree robbery.
