“Individuals of interest” in custody after reports of SUV following and threatening pedestrians in West Maui

Maui police have identified two “individuals of interest” after two suspicious reports Saturday night in which female pedestrians were reportedly followed by an SUV in West Maui, and threatened. In one case, the driver claimed to have a gun; and in the other incident, a gun was pointed at the victim, police said. The “individuals of interest” were in police custody, as of Monday, Aug. 15, 2022.

The first incident was reported at around 8:37 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2022, as a terroristic threatening-type case at Honolua Bay.

Upon arrival, a 19-year-old Colorado female and a 25-year-old Wisconsin woman reported that while walking on the makai shoulder of Honoapiʻilani Highway, a light-colored SUV approached them from behind and then turned around.

As the SUV approached them for the second time, “the male operator exited the vehicle and ordered them into the SUV, claiming to have a gun,” according to a police department press release.

Police say both females fled the area with the male following them in the SUV for a short distance before he fled onto Honoapiʻilani Highway in the opposite direction.

The second incident was reported at approximately 8:41 p.m., when officers responded to a Lahaina residence regarding a robbery-type case that occurred in the 1200 block area of Front Street.
