Police seeking information about Hilo robbery


Hawaiʻi Island police are asking for the public’s help in locating possible witnesses to a robbery early Monday morning (November 3). The incident started around 1 a.m. at an apartment on the 1400 block of Kinoʻole Street and ended on Kinoʻole Street north of Kawili Street.

The female victim reported that a woman removed a bicycle from the apartment building and rode off on Kinoʻole Street. When the victim attempted to get her bike back, a second person driving a black older-model two-door pickup truck intervened and assaulted the victim.

The first suspect is described as a local woman, approximately 5-feet tall, about 110 pounds with long black hair. She was wearing a pink tank top and denim shorts. The description of the second suspect is unknown.

Police ask anyone with information about this incident to call Officer Paul Mangus at 961-2213 or the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the islandwide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by ordinary citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers doesn’t record calls or subscribe to caller ID. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
