Honolulu police arrested a woman who allegedly pointed a gun at a bus driver and made off with a passenger’s bicycle.

It happened on Saturday, Jan. 6, at around 11:50 a.m.

According to police, Annastasia Debibar, 23, was riding on TheBus when she began arguing with the driver over a transfer ticket.

Police say as the argument escalated, she got off the bus at the Neal S. Blaisdell Park on Kamehameha Highway.

Authorities issued a CrimeStopper alert asking the public for help identifying and locating Debibar.

Debibar was arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 1:15 p.m. on Waimano Home Road.
