Man who left nightclub with attempted-murder victim might be in military
Police are seeking a man who was seen leaving a Kapiolani nightclub with attempted-murder victim Evelyn Luka.
Witnesses at the Venus Night Club at 1349 Kapiolani Boulevard said Luka left with the man whose short haircut and cleancut appearance may indicate he is in military service, said Detective Alex Garcia.
Police released a sketch of the man described as appearing 30 to 35 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and 185 pounds.
The pair left the club about 12:30 a.m. Monday and were seen getting into a late model green Nissan Pathfinder with a windshield sticker that may have been military, the detective said.
Garcia said the man may not be a suspect but may have given Luka a ride to another location. He was recognized as an occasional customer in the club.
Luka, 20, of Salt Lake remains in critical condition at Queen’s Hospital with internal injuries so severe that the case was classified an attempted homicide. She was found at 8 a.m. Monday at the edge of the Ka Uka Boulevard exit from H-2 freeway.
Garcia said that a club stamp on Luka’s arm was determined to be from the Venus Night Club where she was recognized as a frequent customer. Witnesses said Luka and the man were seen talking and holding hands in the club.
“She is a vivacious person and was seen holding hands with other people,” Garcia said.
Luka called her husband at home at 12:30 a.m., saying she would catch a ride home with a friend, police said.
The man, or anyone who can identify him, is asked to call Garcia at 529-3390, or CrimeStoppers, 955-8300.
