Kaneohe Marine released after stabbing victim declines to press charges

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Honolulu police released a Kaneohe-based Marine this morning after the fellow Marine he allegedly stabbed refused to press charges.

The victim, 27, remained in stable but serious condition with stab wounds at the Queen’s Medical Center awaiting a transfer to Tripler Army Medical Center, said Lt. Diann Olson, a Marine spokeswoman.

Honolulu police are still investigating the case, however, and officials with Marine Corps Base Hawaii, where both men are stationed, could still proceed with a case through the military court system should they find it warranted, Olson said.

Police said the younger man allegedly stabbed the older man with a knife at about 2:56 a.m. Monday following an argument at the Aikahi Shopping Center, police said.

Both men are lance corporals stationed at the Kaneohe base. The suspect serves in the infantry with Headquarters Company for the 3rd Marine Regiment.
