Man arrested in cane knife attack in Waianae


Police arrested a 45-year-old man who allegedly used a cane knife to chase another man around Laulele Street in Waianae.

The victim, a 38-year-old man, was able to run away and the suspect took out his frustration on the victim’s car, striking the front hood with the 12-inch knife yesterday afternoon, police said.
