    Michael Gibbs stood beforeJudge Russel Nagata in Honolulu District Court today. Gibbs was charged with attempted murder in connection with a Mililani stabbing involving his girlfriend.

A 46-year-old man with an extensive criminal past has been charged in connection with the stabbing of his estranged girlfriend in Mililani last week.

Michael P. Gibbs appeared before Judge Russel Nagata today in Honolulu District Court after prosecutors charged him with second-degree attempted murder and two counts of second-degree assault. His bail is set at $1 million.

The stabbing of Gibbs’ 45-year-old girlfriend occurred early Thursday morning on Waimakua Drive.

Police said a man, later identified as Gibbs, stabbed his girlfriend multiple times.

Their 17-year-old daughter and the daughter’s boyfriend attempted to intervene when Gibbs allegedly assaulted them.

Responding officers arrested him.

Family members said the 45-year-old woman sustained multiple stab wounds to her head, face, neck and back, according to a GoFundMe page the victim’s family created to assist her and her daughter with medical expenses.

The 17-year-old girl received nearly 100 stitches to her face for an injury she sustained in the attack.

Gibbs has a criminal history of 86 arrests and 37 convictions dating back to 1991.

His record includes 14 felony convictions of auto theft, assault, terroristic threatening, burglary and theft.

Gibbs’ criminal record also includes 17 misdemeanor convictions of abuse of a family or household member, unlawful imprisonment, violation of a protective order, assault of a police officer, criminal trespassing and criminal contempt of court.
