For several hours, Honolulu police officers went door-to-door looking for the suspect.

The suspect was finally located, hiding nearby.

He faces attempted murder charges.

No word on why the stabbing happened.

We're told the suspect and the victim both knew each other.

A knife was found near the scene and recovered as evidence.
