Scott Michael McDonough known as "Otto" has a tasty Chinatown business.
He's been selling cheesecakes at his shop called Otto Cake for nearly 3 years, but what's happening outside of his door on Smith Street has not been so sweet.
"I had seen him selling drugs to what I think was small kids," said McDonough.
McDonough said he's seen blatant drug deals of crystal methamphetamine across the street in a park, which have escalated to harrassment and death threats.
He even took pictures of a group of people with what he said looked like white substances in clear plastic bags.
McDonough said there were no arrests after the assault.
He's called 911 multiple times, but he has stopped calling.
Frustrated merchants held a meeting with an officer with the Honolulu Police Department's community policing team on Thursday.
Cpl. Richard Fikani told the business owners that taking photos and video can aggrevate the criminals.
He said don't get personally involved in an incident and call 911.
