Tourists robbed at Big Island park

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) Two tourists camping at a beach park on the Big Island in Hawaii were robbed.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald says the two tourists from California told police they were robbed at knifepoint early Wednesday at Kolekole Beach Park.

The two told police they were in their tent at the park north of Hilo when they were awakened by an intruder with a switchblade who first claimed to be a ranger as he rifled through their things.

The two said the intruder threatened to cut them with the knife if they did not turn over the keys to their rental car with all their belongings, including their wallets, their credit cards and cellphones.

The rental car was later found abandoned in Wainaku.
