An Oahu grand jury indicted a 21-year-old Makaha man for allegedly stabbing the son of a Waianae hardware store owner last month.
Chad Teisina III, also known as Chad Tisina, is being held in the Oahu Community Correctional Center charged with first-degree assault and first-degree robbery in connection with the May 28 stabbing of Jerry Tsu-ne-yo-shi, who works at Waianae Hardware and is the owner's son.
Teisina will be arraigned in Circuit Court. He is at Oahu Community Correctional Center, unable to post bail of $100,000.
Teisina was initially arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder. The charges were later reduced to first-degree assault and first-degree robbery.
The arresting officer said in an affidavit that the suspect pulled a hunting knife with an eight-inch blade from his waistband after he was told to sit on the curb of Farrington Highway.
