The fight began at Mililani Presbyterian Church at 95-410 Kuahelani Ave. at 2:44 p.m. when a 23-year-old man got into an argument with the brother of another 23-year-old man, police said.

The 23-year-old man involved in the argument and a 20-year-old man both had knives and attacked the 23-year-old victim, police said.

The 23-year-old man allegedly punched the victim and stabbed at him while the 20-year-old man allegedly cut the victim on his left arm, causing a large laceration, police said.
