A 19-year-old woman was robbed, stabbed and thrown from a stationary vehicle in the Waimalu area at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, police said.
Being sought are two suspects: a 38-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman.
Detectives said the victim knows the suspects. She was robbed of her backpack, stabbed multiple times by a woman and then thrown from the rear passenger seat of the vehicle, which was driven by a man, police said.
A source said the woman was shoved or pulled out of the vehicle, which was not moving, at the Pearlridge Terrace apartment complex near Kaonohi Street.
The woman was transported in serious condition from 98-731 Moanalua Loop, according to a spokeswoman from the city Department of Emergency Services. The victim suffered what appeared to be gashes to her leg and was taken to the Queen's Medical Center for treatment.
The case is being investigated as an attempted murder and robbery. The male suspect has a long criminal history, detectives said.
The city Department of the Medical Examiner is asking for the public's help identifying a man who collapsed while jogging near Round Top Drive and Maunalaha Road around 3:54 p.m. June 3.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He is described as in his 50s or older, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 197 pounds and having a medium to heavy build with brown eyes and short gray hair. He was wearing a gray T-shirt, white-and-black boardshorts, black socks and white athletic shoes. He also had a scar on his left knee, possibly from surgery. He was carrying a square, silver-colored metal piece resembling a "magic square."
Anyone with information on his identification is asked to call the Medical Examiner's Department at 768-3090.
A 63-year-old man was in stable condition after falling 40 feet down a lava tube on a vacant lot in Pahoa Wednesday afternoon, Big Island firefighters said.
Firefighters said the man was with his son and was surveying the property, which he recently purchased, when he fell into the 3-foot-diameter tube at 12:06 p.m. The incident happened near Kahukai and Moku streets.
Firefighters used a rope and pulley system to lower a firefighter into the hole and retrieve the man in a basket.
A visiting hiker was injured Wednesday at Uluwehi Falls on Kauai.
Fire personnel responded to the call just before 1 p.m.
Rescuers hiked to the area to assist a 60-year-old woman with an injured left ankle but were unable to carry her across the stream due to high water. The Air 1 helicopter airlifted the woman to a safe landing zone, where medics transported her to Wilcox Hospital for treatment.
The woman was part of a tour group.
