Two arrested for kidnapping
HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police have arrested two women for holding and threatening a 19-year-old woman on Oahu.
Police took 38-year-old Michelle Padilla of Ewa Beach and 44-year-old Pisa Padilla of Waipahu into custody early Saturday morning in the Ewa area.
Authorities arrested them on charges of terroristic threatening and assault.
Police initially responded Friday afternoon to a reported kidnapping.
They say the women threatened the teenage victim with a “dangerous instrument” and wouldn’t allow her to leave.
The case is still under investigation.
