Maui police are investigating the armed robbery reported Monday night, April 24, 2017 at around 10 p.m. at the Tokyo Lounge located 315 Hoʻokahi Street in Wailuku.


Police say two masked males had entered the business and attacked patrons and employees before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.  Police did not specify what type of weapon was used.


Police have since identified one suspect. Both suspects remain at large as the investigation is on-going.

This was the first of two armed robbery incidents reported this week.

A separate incident was reported at 10:34 a.m. on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at CosmoProf located at 180 East Wākea Ave. In that incident, employees of the business reported being robbed at gunpoint by two hooded males. Police say the males allegedly tied up the employees and took cash and property before fleeing in a truck, which has since been found abandoned. This morning, police issued an update saying the suspects have been identified and detained, however charges were pending at last report.


It is unclear if the two incidents are related.
