Police investigating stabbing near Keeaumoku McDonald's

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:19 p.m. HST, Mar 31, 2013

Honolulu police are investigating a stabbing on Sheridan Street near the Keeaumoku McDonald's this morning following a large brawl.

Officers arrested a 21-year-old Kalihi man a few blocks away on King Street on suspicion of attempted murder and drug charges, police said.

Arriving officers broke up a fight involving about 20 people just after 7 a.m., police said.

The victim, a 22-year-old man, went to the hospital in stable condition. Paramedics treated him at the scene and were able to stop the bleeding, police said.

It's at least the third violent incident in the Keeaumoku Street area this month.

On March 15, police said a 26-year-old man was stabbed in front of  the Keeaumoku McDonald's. Paramedics took him to the hospital in critical condition . Another 22-year-old man was also stabbed in the incident. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Police said a group of five young men and women got into a fight with another group on the Sheridan Street side of the parking lot of the McDonald's just after 4 a.m. The fight spilled over to the sidewalk on the Ewa side of Keeaumoku Street where the two men were stabbed by the suspect, police said. The suspect then fled the scene.

On March 3, police arrested an Ewa Beach man in a baseball bat assault and stabbing on Makaloa Street  near the Walgreens on Keeaumoku Street, at about 5:30 a.m.

But police released the 20-year-old suspect after the victims declined to press charges.

Paramedics took a 21-year-old man to the hospital with stab wounds and police said a 20-year-old man was hit with a baseball bat in the incident.

McDonald better get their PR people working to improve the image of the locality. However, the gangs use this location to settle their beefs so it's an uphill battle. Wonder if constant police presence would help. Guess not, since these gangs will choose another popular popular quick food area to congregate.

Why does not the fabulously rich McDonald's empire hire private security here? Makes no sense.

Yes. No more plastic stabby knives at McDonalds with the Spam and eggs platter. It's no coincidence the stabbing was at 7am breakfast time. And the large sodas will kill you too.

Sadly this section of Keeaumkou has become a real problem area lately. It was actually better back in the days of the K-bars. Today the sidewalks are filthy, homeless hiding in bushes, prostitutes (I think that was the basis of the fight in this story), all kind of second story illegal activities and utter neglect of public areas by predominantly Korean restaurant and shop owners who don 't even sweep their sidewalks. The traffic caused by the big WalMart a block makai is horrendous and it has become a hangout for marginal critters. Great example of terrible urban planning.

gotta blame the faulty reporting for all these wild speculations. nothing said about if they were mcd customers or patrons or of the many bars in area. nothing about the race, yet one posters stirs up suspicion, needlessly. a man stabs another and can go scot free? is this group connected to the same group fighting earlier this month. what happened to the previous group, any charges?

The reporters shouldn't use McDonalds as a reference point for these type of stories. It is totally unfair to this business.

McDonalds is one of the very few businesses along with HMSA that maintains standards for its property. They do a good job even when a lot of their clients are seedy and disreputable. If the other businesses cared as much as McD's the area would be better. Props to Mickey D's.

I miss the old Honolulu of the 1960s. People would drive with courtesy. We never bothered to lock our cars. Nowadays, it's a rat race in Honolulu. People fighting for parking. I waited for parking at the Honolulu Costco and this Samoa lady sped into my saved stall with her navy blue SUV yesterday afternoon.. I told her that I am waiting and she gave me the finger saying that I was not waiting for that stall. My message for her is to cut it out before someone much more nuts than I am, and can't walk away like I did, do some damage.

Teenage unemployment is at the highest rate in years as older people are taking jobs that teenagers traditional took. Coming from poor families, college is out. With the price of everything going up, they take their frustrations out on eachother. This area will be ground zero for civil unrest when the economy collapses.

Just have McDonald close at midnight and chain the entrance to their parking lot. This will allow the rats to move to another establishment and stop giving McDonald at Sheridan a bad reputation.

How will chaining the entrance at midnight stop a fight at 7 A.M.? Should McDonald's wait until noon to open?

Sheridan Street is the problem, especially with the bars and people getting out very late. Now the time of day seems to have no bearing. It might help if HPD starts to use that back parking lot as their hangout, much as they use some church parking lots at night.
