Media Release (update)

Big Island police are renewing their request for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a gas station robbery last month.

A male armed with a knife entered the 76 gas station at the corner of Ainako Avenue and Kaumana Drive in Hilo on September 25 around 7:45 p.m. and demanded money. He then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, possibly in a white pickup truck.

The victim did not sustain any injuries.

Police previously requested information about possible witnesses in a dark Scion with custom rims. The Scion has since been located.

Police ask that anyone who may know the identity of the man in the surveillance photo above call Officer Donovan Kohara or Officer Clive Okino at the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
