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.
