Woman arrested in friend’s stabbing
Police arrested a 62-year-old woman for allegedly stabbing her friend and housemate, a 50-year-old woman, multiple times yesterday afternoon in Mililani.
Police said the two women had been drinking while both were riding in the back seat of a car on their way home from the store when an argument occurred. The older woman got upset and allegedly began stabbing the younger woman with a small folding pocketknife, police said.
Paramedics responded to a 3:06 p.m. call at Wailawa Street. The victim was taken to a trauma center in serious condition with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds, said Bryan Cheplic, city Emergency Services Department spokesman.
