Relative allegedly stabs sleeping man

A sleeping man was stabbed twice by a relative in Kaneohe yesterday, police said.

The victim, 30, was taken in serious condition to the trauma center at the Queen's Medical Center after he was stabbed with a kitchen knife just before 5:30 a.m.

A suspect, 57, was arrested at the scene. A police record indicated he lives at the Kaneohe Bay Drive address.

He was being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

 

Hunter rescued after attack by bees

Firefighters rescued a pig hunter yesterday after he was attacked by a swarm of bees and tumbled down a hillside above Tantalus.

The man, who was in his 30s or 40s, was with two other hunters hiking on the Moana Cliffs Trail at about 12:30 p.m., said city fire Capt. Terry Seelig.

The men encountered a beehive, and all three were stung by bees. One had an allergic reaction, Seelig said. In an attempt to get away, two of the men, including the man with the allergy, dropped about 60 feet off the side of the trail in a "rolling tumble," Seelig said.

Firefighters hiked about two miles and rappelled down to reach the stranded hunters.

A fire helicopter picked up the allergic man and transferred him to an ambulance at a park on Round Top Drive at about 1:50 p.m.

The two others hiked out with firefighters.
