LATEST: A man believed to be connected with the break-in at LOST star Josh Holloway's Hawaii home has been arrested by police in Honolulu.

Authorities arrested the man after a car he and a companion were travelling in was pulled over. Police say the man matches the general description of the person who broke into Holloway's home on 12 October (05) and held the actor and his wife at gunpoint.

During the incident, Holloway and his wife YESSICA were roused from bed at gunpoint by a man who took cash and credit cards and then drove off in Holloway's Mercedes-Benz, which police found abandoned a short time later.

The suspect, who was arrested on outstanding burglary and assault warrants, was reportedly forced out of the car he was in with pepper spray and wooden bullets fired by the attending officers.
