Police arrested one man and another man went to the hospital with stab wounds after a bar fight in the Keeaumoku area early this morning, according to police and Emergency Medical Services reports.

Police said two groups of men got into a fight at an unidentified bar at 1:20 a.m. that ended with the victim being stabbed in the leg with a knife.

The victim's friends took him to the hospital, police said. The other group of men fled the scene, but police arrested a 22-year-old Kalihi man near Piikoi and Young streets about an hour later  on suspicion of second-degree assault.

Paramedics responded at 1:50 a.m. to Keeaumoku Street near Kona Street on a report of a stabbing, but the victims had already left the scene.

Police have been investigating a number of early morning violent incidents in the Keeaumoku Street area since March.

Suffice it to say, Keeaumoku area might not be the best place to be after midnight. . . This new round of violence coincided with the opening of a few "kiddie bars." GOT PUNKS??? Yeah, young, drunk punks fighting over some tease of a young, new-age bar girl. . . When only had the "mature man" Korean buy drinky bars, these incidents were far, far less frequent.
