Police are asking for the public’s help locating suspects in several criminal cases dating back to 2010.

One is 47-year-old Rexford Milo, who is wanted for allegedly assaulting a 64-year-old Leilani Estates man in August 2010.

Police said Milo threatened the man with a shotgun and knocked him to the ground. He then allegedly tied the man up and stole cash, identification and credit cards before driving off in the victim’s pickup truck.

Milo is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-10 and 145 pounds.

Police said he may be in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates area, and should not be approached as he may be armed.

The victim’s pickup truck is still missing. It was described as a dark green, four-wheel-drive Toyota Tacoma model.

Also being sought is 30-year-old David Botelho, who is wanted on a $20,000 bench warrant in connection with a burglary, theft and credit-card investigation.

Botelho, a Honoka`a resident, is 5-foot-5 and 150 pounds, with short black hair and hazel eyes.
