An attempted murder suspect is on the run after a violent attack in Kalihi

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 45-year-old man was seriously injured after being stabbed in the neck in Kalihi on Tuesday morning.

Honolulu police said they’re still searching for a suspect in the attempted murder.

The property manager at the Akepo Arms apartment complex on North King Street said their surveillance cameras captured the victim arguing with a man and a woman who do not live there around 930 a.m. The property manager said moments later, the victim is seen bleeding from his neck.

Resident of the complex Pume Beltran didn’t see the stabbing, but saw the victim bleeding.

“He came from the third floor downstairs and he has a cut, like a big stab wound right there. So he takes off his shirt right in front of us and starts to wrap it around his neck,” said Beltran.

Beltran said his neighbor then walked back upstairs.

“And he came back down and (expletive) there was a second stabbing and that’s when the police got called,” Beltran said. “Somebody from here called 911 I guess when he was passed out and just gushing.”

Police sources say the suspect, who is known to police, is possibly affiliated with a gang that has been on a crime spree recently.

They say the gang is responsible for multiple robberies, stolen vehicles and property crimes and HPD has even formed a task force to crackdown on them.
