Surveillance video image of Makiki bank robber released
CrimeStoppers has released a surveillance video image of the man who robbed Central Pacific Bank's banch at 1338 South Beretania Street Monday.
The robbery took place about 9:35 a.m. when the man brandished a gun at a teller and demanded money. He fled on foot toward Kinau Street.
It was the seventh bank robbery on Oahu this year. That's nearly twice the number for the same time last year.
All have taken place in a span of less than three weeks.
The man seen in the video image wears a baseball cap and a surgical mask, which matches witness accounts in several of the other recent robberies.
The man is described as in his 30s or 40s, about 6 feet tall and between 140 and 180 pounds. He was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt and blue denim jeans, and a white baseball cap with a dark bill.
Anyone with information about the robbery can call the CrimeStoppers hot line at 955-8300.
