A 31-year-old man has been charged with eight offenses in connection with an armed break-in at a home in Ocean View on Sunday (December 6).

At 4 p.m. Sunday, Kaʻū District officers responded to a report of a man with a knife at a home on the 92-1600 block of Aloha Boulevard in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates subdivision.

Officers learned that a man had reportedly broken into the house, threatened a 73-year-old woman and a 73-year-old man with a knife and a rock, removed car keys, injured the male victim during a struggle for the keys and attempted to steal their car. He fled from the area on foot just as police were arriving. Officers followed him and arrested the man, identified as Alan J. Dush, who has no permanent address.
