Masked men rob
Ewa Beach store
Halloween came early in Ewa Beach after two men -- one wearing a "monster" mask -- robbed a stationery store this week, according to police.
Police said the suspects walked into the Morning Glory store at 91-1001 Kaimalie Street at about 9 p.m. Tuesday. A store worker told police that the suspect with the mask was armed with a silver handgun and demanded money.
Store officials also said the suspects wanted the worker to open up a case with gold and silver jewelry but gave up after the worker told them he did not have the key. Both suspects fled toward Fort Weaver Road with an undisclosed amount of cash.
At about the same time, a resident in the area reported seeing a male in a red jacket run through his yard toward Ahona Street. Police said the incidents appear to be related.
The first suspect in the case is described as in his early 20s, 6 feet, about 140 pounds, with a thin build, short black kinky hair and brown eyes. He was also last seen wearing a red flannel jacket and jeans, and armed with a silver handgun.
The second suspect had a similar physical description and was last seen wearing a gray short-sleeved T-shirt and jeans, police said.
Police also said they suspect a fugitive could be involved in the case.
Lopaka Selby-Oglseby is wanted for a probation revocation warrant and two traffic warrants. Selby-Oglseby was convicted of felony assault after attempting to run over a uniformed police officer who was investigating a domestic violence case in June 2002.

He also has multiple tattoos: "MS" on his right upper arm, "X-pac" on the left side of his chest, and other unknown tattoos on his right hand and left forearm.
