Waikiki stabbing victim identified

A 38-year-old homeless man who was stabbed to death in Waikiki was identified yesterday by the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office as Earl Grant III of Honolulu.

He died of a stab wound to the heart, the office said.

Police said the incident began at about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday with a dispute among three or more men at the corner of Kapahulu and Kalakaua avenues.

A suspect in the stabbing told a security guard that he was attacked by three men, who fled in different directions, police said. The security guard pursued one of the men, Grant, who collapsed near the Kapiolani Park Bandstand.

Grant, an ex-Marine, was taken to a hospital, where he died.
