    Cedar Chavarria was wheeled into District Court in a wheelchair on Feb. 3. He was unable to move normally and kept his head lowered the entire time he was in court. An Oahu grand jury indicted the 26-year-old man Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed a 28-year-old man in an apparently unprovoked attack in Waikiki.

An Oahu grand jury has indicted a 26-year-old man after he allegedly stabbed a 28-year-old man in an apparently unprovoked attack in Waikiki.

The grand jury charged Cedar Chavarria Tuesday with attempted second-degree murder in the Jan. 31 stabbing of a man in a pedestrian walkway on Kalakaua Avenue.

Chavarria’s arraignment is set for Monday before Judge Colette Garibaldi at Circuit Court. He remains in custody at the Oahu Community Correctional Center on $100,000 bail.

Police said the victim suffered stab wounds to his neck and chest and was transported to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.

Officers located Chavarria on Ala Wai Boulevard and recovered a 6-inch knife from his jacket.
