Update: On April 20, 2012, Circuit Court Judge Karen Ahn dismissed the attempted murder charge against Sujan Swearingen without prejudice, which means it could be reinstated later. Ahn dismissed the charge after the prosecutor asked to postpone the trial because the complainant could not be located, according to court documents. Swearingen, who had been held on $100,000 bail, was then released.
Authorities have brought an attempted-murder charge against a man accused of stabbing a man during an argument Monday in Waikiki.
Sujan Swearingen, whom police say has no local address, is being held on $25,000 bail. He was charged Wednesday with second-degree attempted murder.
Police arrested Swearingen Monday several minutes after a man in his 50s was stabbed about 5:45 p.m. at Queen's Surf Beach.
The victim, who also has no local address, was reported in serious condition at Queen's Medical Center after suffering multiple stab wounds.
