Maui Crime Stoppers is seeking the public’s help in identifying two individuals allegedly involved in a case in which the victims were threatened at knife point after being questioned about a theft of personal property.

Surveillance: courtesy images. *The public is reminded that the above information is provided by authorities, and all parties are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The incident began at around 5:45 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017 when two unknown Hispanic males within a red Nissan Frontier pickup truck, approached the victims along the Piʻilani Highway in the Kanaio area, and questioned them regarding the theft of a cooler and beer.

The two males then drove towards Makawao, motioning for the victims to follow them.

Upon stopping at the Makawao Minit Stop at around 6:35 a.m., the operator of the red Nissan exited the vehicle and threatened the victims with a black folding knife.

The victims got back in their vehicle and left the area.  No license plate was observed for the red Nissan.
