Officer injured, 2 men stabbed in large Kalihi fight

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:05 p.m. HST, Sep 01, 2013

A police officer was injured and two men were stabbed during a large fight, involving about 50 people, in Kalihi Saturday night, Honolulu police and paramedics said.

Police are searching for suspects in the assault on an officer and stabbings.

The police officer, a 51-year-old man, was struck on the head with an object and taken to the hospital in stable condition, according to an Emergency Medical Services report. Police said he was trying to disperse the crowd when he was struck from behind.

Officers responded to the fight near 1249 N. School St. and found the injured victims, a 21-year-old men and a 25-year-old man. Police said the 21-year-old victim was stabbed and the 25-year-old victim sustained a puncture wound to his shoulder.

Both men were in stable condition, EMS said.

Paramedics initially reported that three men were stabbed in the incident at about 10:43 p.m.

Witnesses said they saw people throwing punches, rocks and pieces of wood, and getting baseball bats.

Sean Tuuero said the first police officer to arrive had to wait for more officers to arrive. "He can't do anything by himself for a while," he said.

Witnesses said the fight broke out in the middle of Aupuni Street, just off of School Street.

Tuuero said he didn't know what started the fight but that "it's always over there," adding that it's not the first time fights have broken out in the area.

It was probably was a fight between Samoans and Chuukese. I don't mention Micronesian because it's too broad. Micronesian could be from Guam, Palau, Marshall Islands, Northern Marianas Island, Yap, Pohnpeii, Chuuk, Kosrae and Kiribati.

If you're right this could explain why the streets of Chinatown as well as the streets near and around Mayor Wright Housing were devoid of certain gangs of various ethnic backgrounds.

IRT HAJAAA1, why should townies be embarrassed by something they have no control of? This is not vigilante town. I notice that you NEVER ever say where you're from. Why? Embarrassed, or that way you can always criticize what happens in town? You're pathetic and predictable.

Better use high pressure water canons, it would clear the area quickly and without risk to the officers.

The cops should have shown up in force and arrested every single one of them - all 50. It is absolutely unacceptable that the majority of them were allowed to walk.

How? They would need to call in officers from four districts just to make the odds one-to-one and in the meantime they wouldn't be able to stop everyone from running in all different directions. Police don't have superpowers.

Such childish display of teenagers and young adults. And a lot of you say that our police officers DO NOT deserve a raise? And more say that they are corrupt? Put yourselves on the line next time a riot like this breaks out, get stabbed, but don't call the police if you don't believe that they need their raises! This display stupid antics deserve punishment, set an example, stop coddling these kids, make them work, make them do time, make them accountable for their actions so that this type of behavior does not transition into adulthood.

SA quickly prints out news update without providing all of the vital information. "Officer injured, 2 men stabbed in large Kalihi fight." SA's flash news articles are usually incomplete and provides readers speculating with their own theory and knowing many don't really know what actually took place. It's disheartening to read many unnecessary derogatory remarks, especially against certain ethnic groups. There are always good and bad in every race, and a few bad apples will surely instill a bad reputation for the rest that are good law abiding citizens. Bursting out with false information is uncalled for and unacceptable. "It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt."
