Makiki man stabs teen in self defense

MAKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 36 year old man allegedly stabbed a 17 year old in self defense on Saturday.

Police say the teen and three of his friends tried to rob the man at his home, then punched him when he tried to get away.

The man then stabbed the minor with his pocket knife, and the juvenile suspect was taken to the hospital in serious condition. That suspect remained confined in the hospital Saturday night according to police.

Police have arrested two of the suspects for robbery and assault, but a fourth suspect fled the scene.
