Argument leads to stabbing and arrest

A man in his early 50s was reported in serious condition after suffering multiple stab wounds Monday following an argument at Queen's Surf in Waikiki.

The man, with no local address, was stabbed at about 5:45 p.m. by a homeless man in his late 30s who also has no local address, police said. He was taken by ambulance to the Queen's Medical Center.

Police arrested a suspect several minutes after the attack.

In addition to being held pending further investigation, the alleged assailant also was arrested on suspicion of three charges of contempt of court stemming from prior incidents, police said.

Kalama Valley fire prompts evacuations

A brush fire forced the evacuation of several homes in Kalama Valley on Monday as strong winds gave firefighters difficulty confining the blaze near the Hawaii Kai Golf Course.

The brush fire burned about five to seven acres near Mokuhano Street and Waikapu Loop before being contained a little more than an hour after firefighters received the call at 2:28 p.m.

Fire spokesman Terry Seelig said four or five homes along Waikapu Loop were evacuated briefly.

A helicopter and 45 firefighters were used to contain the blaze.

Seelig said neighbors saw young kids on bikes near the blaze but were not sure whether they were responsible for it. He said fire officials were unable to find the origin of the blaze.

Visitor injured on Kalawahine Trail hike

A tourist in her 60s had to be airlifted to safety Monday morning by the Honolulu Fire Department's helicopter when she injured her leg while hiking on the Kalawahine Trail to Pauoa Flats.

Firefighters were dispatched at 10:15 a.m. when the tourist slipped while hiking with a commercial tour group, Capt. Terry Seelig, Fire Department spokesman, said.

Rescuers reached the group at 10:45 a.m. The woman and her husband were airlifted by helicopter to Manoa District Park by 11:10 a.m.

The woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries, which Seelig said were "non-life-threatening."
