Hawaiʻi Island police have arrested a 32-year-old Kailua-Kona man in connection with a reported robbery in an apartment early Thursday (January 19) on Kahakai Road.

Joshua Ryan Koenig was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of burglary, robbery and kidnapping. He is being held at the Kona police cellblock while detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section continue the investigation.

In response to a 1:40 a.m. call Thursday, Kona Patrol officers were dispatched to the 75-5800 block of Kahakai Road, where a 62-year-old woman reported that she woke up to find an unknown man in her apartment asking for money. When the victim tried to get away, the intruder shoved her to the floor and restrained her. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man’s image was captured on a surveillance camera.
