A man accused in a stabbing at the Waianae Boat Harbor on Saturday has been charged with second-degree assault, according to Honolulu police. 

Police initially arrested 64-year-old George Liner for attempted murder. He's accused of stabbing a 53-year-old man in the neck and the back with a fishing knife after an argument.

Police say Liner then fled the scene on a bicycle.

The victim was able to call 911 and was transported to the Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu in serious condition.

Liner later turned himself in and was arrested.

It is unclear what the two were arguing about. Their relationship is also unknown.
