CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department want the public’s
assistance in identifying two male suspects in a robbery that occurred on Valentine’s Day, Friday, Feb. 14, 2003, near 3607 Diamond Head Road.

At 2 a.m., two 22-year-old males were sitting on the wall at Diamond Head lookout playing guitar when a white, older model Japanese sedan drove up and parked. Suspect #1 got out of the vehicle holding a baseball bat and struck one male and then the other while demanding money. Suspect #2 stole the guitar that was dropped on the ground. Both suspects fled in the vehicle toward Kahala.


Victim #1 sustained a fractured jaw and ear lacerations that required
plastic surgery. Victim #2 suffered head trauma that required staples to the rear of his head.
