A 21-year-old Kailua-Kona man was charged for allegedly cutting two people with a broken beer bottle in Kona on August 4.

Big Island police arrested Andrew Storseth Tuesday evening. He was charged yesterday afternoon with second-degree assault, third-degree assault and terroristic threatening.

The stabbing happened at about 7 p.m. in a downtown Kailua-Kona parking lot. Police said a group of people had been drinking and an argument broke out.
