    Honolulu Police Department Capt. Gordon Lum Kee speaks outside the Wahiawa police station about this morning’s slashing attack at a Sunset Beach home.

UPDATE: 4 p.m.

The three treated victims involved in the alleged assault on the North Shore this morning suffered “slashing-type injuries” that were caused by an “edged” weapon, Honolulu police Capt. Gordon Lum Kee said at a news conference at the Wahiawa police station.

Lum Kee said the weapon used was not a knife, but he would only describe it as one that “can cut and slice.”

The victims were injured inside a Sunset Beach home, although it’s not clear if everyone involved in the incident lived at the residence.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man, collapsed after police handcuffed him and was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

He was not stabbed, Lum Kee said, and police reported that he did not have any visible injuries.

HPD’s initial report is that the suspect does not have a criminal background, and police have not been called recently for problems at the home.

Much of the alleged assault is still under investigation, he said.

Lum Kee said those involved in the incident were immediate family members, but did not confirm the exact relationship between them. What led to the attack and the exact nature of the victims’ injuries are also still unclear.

Three second-degree assault cases have been opened.
