An arrest was made in the Punahou Street murder case, police said Saturday.
The name of the suspect has not been released.
Neighbors said police found a wallet and personal items belonging to the victim, Mary Beth San Juan, 56, in a trash bin off Lemon Road in Waikiki.
Investigators have also been looking into surveillance video that appears to show a man dressed in women's clothing using the victim's ATM card at the First Hawaiian Bank in Manoa Market Place Monday just after midnight.
On Tuesday, San Juan's car was found by police at Kapiolani Park, just a short walk from the same trash bin investigators sifted through Thursday night.
The medical examiner's autopsy results show San Juan, an aspiring actress, was stabbed multiple times before being found dead in her driveway.
