Honolulu police released the audio for the 911 calls Wednesday from the day inmate Teddy Munet escaped from corrections officers at Circuit Court.
Munet eluded authorities for about 12 hours on Feb. 20.
The first caller reported an attempted carjacking on Halekauwila Street at around 8:09 a.m. Public Information Officer for the Department of Public Safety Toni Schwartz said the attempted carjacking happened within minutes of the escape.
Caller: "“Hi, umm I was just attempted a carjacking on Halekauwila Street. Because there was traffic on Halekauwila, somebody just came up opened my door and tried to pull me out, but I was buckled up. There was a lot of witnesses. I honked my horn and he ran off toward Punchbowl Street."
911 operator: “What is he wearing?”
Caller: “He was wearing black shorts and a black sweater. Local male like maybe about 5-10. Slim. Short cut hair. He ran off toward Punchbowl Street. He like tried to pull me out of my car.”
The caller said she was stopped in a driveway waiting to turn right. She also said she saw corrections officers trying to run after him.
A second caller reported seeing Munet on Kawaiahao Street at around 7:09 p.m.
