A 44-year-old Honolulu man who was arguing with his girlfriend early yesterday morning allegedly tried to stab a man who tried to intervene and then allegedly kicked and threatened another man, police said.
The first victim, a 23-year-old man, heard the suspect arguing with his girlfriend around 5:15 a.m. yesterday and found him standing in the stairwell holding a long knife, police said.
The suspect allegedly tried to stab the 23-year-old man, who ran back into the bedroom and locked the door, police said. While threatening to kill the 23-year-old man, the suspect repeatedly stabbed the door with so much force that the blade protruded through the door, police said.
A 58-year-old man heard the commotion and confronted the suspect, who was then swinging two bats in the living room, police said.
The suspect allegedly kicked the 58-year-old man in the chest and threatened to stab him with a knife, police said. The suspect then grabbed a second knife from the kitchen.
Police said the 23-year-old man then grabbed the suspect from behind and pinned him to the ground as the suspect tried to grab the knives.
Police arrested the suspect on two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening.
