A suspect accused of barging into a Kaneohe home claiming to be a Honolulu police officer has been indicted.
An Oahu grand jury indicted Frank Jessie Moreno, 41, on felony charges of first-degree burglary and unauthorized entry into a dwelling.
He had previously appeared in court Friday, June 9, on charges stemming from an incident that occurred Tuesday, June 6, at around 9 p.m.
Dorsey Roberts and his wife told KHON2 they found three men in front of his aunt’s home, claiming to be with the Honolulu Police Department.
According to court documents, armed men barged into the home, and one of them pushed, then punched the 62-year-old woman, causing her to fall on the floor twice.
Roberts, who is a former Marine, and another neighbor, an off-duty police officer, managed to take down one of the suspects, identified as Moreno.
“I grabbed him by his dreadlocks and arms and slammed him down, and I just sat down on his back,” Roberts said.
The other suspects, he says, got away in a car. They weren’t able to take anything from the home.
Moreno’s bail was confirmed at $100,000.
