Holloway describes robbery
"LOST" actor Josh Holloway says being robbed at gunpoint in his Hawaii Kai home was "like getting hit by lighting."
"People get robbed every day -- in L.A., New York," Holloway said. "I've lived in those cities for 10 years and considered myself fortunate to never have experienced it there."
Holloway, who plays a con man on the ABC show, and wife Yessica Kumala were robbed about 4 a.m. Oct. 12 by an armed intruder. Holloway's first interview about the robbery was with "Entertainment Tonight," airing last night. The Star-Bulletin obtained a partial transcript of the interview.
"When someone has a gun in your face, don't give them any reason to pull the trigger," Holloway says. "That's it, there's nothing you can do. If someone is pointing a 9 mm at me, I'm not moving."
Holloway said his biggest concern was keeping his wife safe. "I just covered my wife and protected her, and that was it. And off he went."
The actor doesn't know if he was targeted because of his celebrity. "Maybe he inquired and got some information," he says of the robber. "I'm not sure."
His neighborhood, on the canal facing a cul-de-sac, "has been great," he said. "Everybody has been really supportive. All of my neighbors are like, 'My God, this doesn't happen.'
"It's not a reflection of how Hawaii is. The police officers were really shocked that he had a gun -- that's very rare."
Holloway said the incident was "just unfortunate," and "we just want to let it go."
