Hawaii Public Housing Authority Director addresses latest stabbing incident

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Renewed safety concerns at Mayor Wright Homes.

After reviewing conflicting reports, authorities are still trying to figure out exactly what sparked a violent stabbing spree.

It's the second deadly attack at the Kalihi complex in less than five months.

Police responded around 6:45 Friday night after a fight broke out involving several people.

Emergency crews took four stabbing victims to the hospital.

One of them later died.

Officers arrested 33-year old Enrico Golden for second degree murder.

Authorities say there were 3 security guards on duty at the time, with two more scheduled to start about 15 minutes later.

The new Director of the Hawaii Public Housing Authority says changes started being implemented a few weeks ago like securing fences in low spots.

Future improvements will include security cameras and only allowing residents in with their cars beyond a certain point.

A curfew will also be enforced, and they're considering undercover work by law enforcement officers.

But some residents still don't feel safe.

"Sometimes I come home late from practice, and it feels like it might happen to me so I just want to try to be safe", said Mayor Wright resident Aulii Asato.

"We take the security of our tenants and our keiki very very seriously, and this matter has been, before this incident as my number one priority", said Hakim Ouansafi, Hawaii Public Housing Authority Director.

Last September TJ Mori was stabbed to death after a fight at Mayor Wright Homes.

21-year old Takson Krstoth pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

We'll have more on the security changes tonight at 9:00 and 10:00.
