Suspect caught after allegedly robbing bank on King St.

Honolulu police arrested a man after they said he robbed a bank Thursday.

It happened at around 2:30 p.m. at the Bank of Hawaii branch on King Street, just past Keeaumoku Street.

Our camera was the only one there when police took him away. He wore a neon-colored shirt, similar to what a construction worker would wear.

But, police sources tell us, that’s not what he was wearing when he allegedly robbed the bank.

They say he had on a hoodie when he pulled out a gun and demanded money from the teller. He got away and workers called police.

As the workers met with police, they saw the suspect come out of an elevator just outside the bank. He had apparently changed his clothes.

The workers identified him and the suspect was arrested. He has not been charged.

Police sources say the gun used in the robbery was recovered near the scene.

Just two days ago, another Bank of Hawaii branch was robbed, just over a mile away. Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect.

At this time, it’s unknown if the two cases are related.
