A 50-year-old Kurtistown man wanted in connection to an armed burglary is being sought after by the Hawai’i Police Department.

The man, identified as William Chase, reportedly went to a home on Uau Road in Kurtistown and brandished a firearm at a 19-year-old male acquaintance after he opened the door.

Chase allegedly forced his way into the hose and threatened a 44-year-old woman, a teenage boy, and a teenage girl with the weapon before leaving in a gray Toyota pickup truck.

Police describe Chase as 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds. He has short gray hair and possibly a mustache and beard.

HPD warns that Chase is considered armed and dangerous. Members of the public should not approach him.
