Police Arrest Man In Chinatown Destruction – Yahoo! News
Honolulu police arrested a 31-year-old man they said wreaked havoc in Chinatown early Sunday morning.
Peter Hsu works seven days a week at his shop, Imperial Tailor and Gifts, on the corner of King and Maunakea streets.
He spent Sunday morning boarding up broken windows. Police said the windows were broken by a man who caused trouble around Chinatown.
“Early, about 4:30 a.m., the policeman called me, saying my shop, the windows were broken. Come down here right away,” Hsu said.
Rita Torres stopped by the shop to check on the Hsus. She heard the commotion earlier and called police.
“He was actually walking fast and he had something in his hand and he was just bashing the windows and then he just disappeared into the parking garage,” Torres said.
Five windows were shattered along with a glass door.
“It never happened to me before. This is the first time in about 30 some years,” Hsu said.
He estimates that the broken glass and window frames will cost a few thousand dollars to fix. Nothing in the store was taken.
“I feel real tired. I’ve been up since 4:30 this morning,” Hsu said.
Police arrested the man a short while later. They said he was most likely intoxicated.
