An argument at a Mililani church yesterday ended with one man in the hospital with a stab wound and two men arrested for investigation of second-degree attempted murder, police said.
The fight began at Mililani Presbyterian Church at 95-410 Kuahelani Ave. at 2:44 p.m. when a 23-year-old man got into an argument with the brother of another 23-year-old man, police said.
The 23-year-old man involved in the argument and a 20-year-old man both had knives and attacked the 23-year-old victim, police said.
The 23-year-old man allegedly punched the victim and stabbed at him while the 20-year-old man allegedly cut the victim on his left arm, causing a large laceration, police said.
Family members detained both men until police arrived and arrested both suspects for investigation of second-degree attempted murder. The 23-year-old man also was arrested on suspicion of an outstanding warrant.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition and was treated for a stab wound, police said.
A weapon was recovered at the scene, police said.
This is precisely why I don't go to church ;-)
