A quick-thinking man may have damaged his car, but is alive and well…and a would-be robber fled the scene as an empty-handed coward.
Maui Police say a man was parked in his car at Kahului’s Home Depot Wednesday night. Shortly after 8 p.m., a male suspect then entered his vehicle brandishing a knife and demanded his property.
The victim accelerated his vehicle and collided into a barricade. After the crash, the suspect exited the vehicle and fled the scene. The victim sustained minor injuries.
This case is still under investigation and no further information is available at this time.
