As of noon today, six men had been arrested in connection with a home invasion robbery of a home in Palolo Valley early Sunday morning, and four of them had been charged.

Police yesterday morning made the fifth and sixth arrests of suspects in the case; Clement K. Leoiki-Mutch, 19, of Tantalus Drive, and Herb H.K. Kolo, 22, of Kaulula'au Street.

Leoiki-Mutch was arrested at 6:15 a.m. fronting a Puowaina Street address in Punchbowl, while Kolo was picked up at 9 a.m. on Ualena Street in Mapunapuna.

Police today said they were not anticipating any more arrests in the case.

Also arrested were Kainoa Ah Mook Sang, 20, and Lemuel Jones, 24, who were arrested Wednesday in connection with the case. Jones lists a Tantalus Drive address and Ah Mook Sang and Kolo share the same address, according to police records.

Arrested Sunday morning at the scene of the incident were Jordan K. Artuyo, 18, and Justin Lono, 28.

As of noon today, charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and multiple counts of kidnapping had been brought against Artuyo, Lono, Ah Mook Sang, and Kolo. Bail for each of the men was sent at $350,000.

Jones and Leoiki-Mutch remained in police custody today with charges pending against them.

The six men are suspects in the early-morning break-in and robbery of a home on the 2000 block of 10th Avenue in Palolo. Six men were tied up and threatened with guns and knives, while a woman also was threatened, but she was not bound by the suspects, police said.
