By Leila Fujimori

LAST UPDATED: 09:47 p.m. HST, Oct 11, 2013

A 26-year-old local musician who has a history of assault was arrested early this morning for allegedly stabbing his live-in girlfriend with an 8-inch butter knife.

Police arrested Kaipo Kapua at 1:55 a.m. at their Kaha-luu home on suspicion of attempted murder and kidnapping, but he has not been charged.

Kapua and his 23-year-old girlfriend got into an argument at about 9 a.m. Thursday, and the argument escalated, police said.

He then allegedly began choking the woman and threatened to kill her. She was stabbed in the right knee, causing a deep puncture wound, police said.

HNN says this is Kaipo Kapua. Take a look at his pix, seems like a real winner. Note to ladies - if your d-bag boyfriend takes pictures and makes hand v-signs like he is a gangster from LA circa 1987, you can just skip the verbal, physical and mental abuse (possibly ending with your murder) and take that as a clue to immediately dump him.
