Hawaii County police have charged a 58-year-old Keaau man with attempted first-degree murder and numerous other charges.

Police were called at 4:42 p.m. Thursday for a disturbance at the Aulii Street home of Joseph Feliciano, who, police said, was wielding two-edged weapons when they arrived.

Feliciano, wanted for a separate assault Wednesday, refused to comply with police and allegedly threw a weapon at an officer, who avoided getting hit.

Police arrested Feliciano at 5:20 p.m. on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, resisting arrest, second-degree assault and two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening.

He was treated for minor injuries at Hilo Medical Center and released.

Police charged Feliciano with attempted first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, first-degree attempted assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.

Police also charged him with first-degree assault and abuse of a family or household member for allegedly hitting a 48-year-old woman in the face during a domestic argument Wednesday at their Keaau home.

The woman declined treatment, police said.

Feliciano's bail was set at $558,000 and he is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
