LAST UPDATED: 04:45 p.m. HST, Aug 29, 2013

A man was hospitalized in serious condition and police opened an attempted murder investigation following an apparent stabbing at Mother Waldron Park in Kakaako this afternoon.

Officers arrested two suspects nearby on Auahi Street just after the 2:15 p.m. incident, patrol Lt. Benjamin Mahi said.

A man walking through the park argued with five other men at the park, and the argument escalated, Mahi said.

"A fight ensued and during the course of the fight, a dangerous instrument was presented by one of the males injuring another male substantially,” Mahi said. He described the injuries as “cuts.”

An “edged” weapon was recovered at the scene. The park was roped off by officers as detectives investigated.

I presume it was amongst the homeless that congregate at Mother Waldron Park. If would be interesting to find out where these Increasing number of homeless are coming from. I have personally noticed that there are many that have seemed to have transplanted themselves in our local communities. Unfortunately we seem to be the recipients of transplants via the "Greyhound Therapy" program from other States. It's gotten to the point that a simple walk in the community can be simply unsafe. It is not uncommon to be sworn at for no reason or if you opt to ignore request for money...happening just too often...take a walk around Walmart (Keeaumoku), Kapahulu Avenue (to an from Waikiki), Kapiolani Blvd., Kalakaua Ave., etc. It will come to your neighborhood soon. Yes, time are a changing...we got to do something about this for the safety of Family and Friends. Be careful and watch your backside!

There was talk about Mike Chang suggesting a homeless camp of Sand Island but seems to evaporated into thin air. Yes, for the safety of the community something gotta be done, before kids start getting hurt. Naysayers who mantra "they won't go" need to zip it or nothing can be done.
