Man charged for Kona stabbing
Police have charged a Kona man with several offenses for allegedly stabbing two men last week in Kailua-Kona.
On Saturday evening, Kona Criminal Investigation Section detectives charged 43-year-old Michael Dalton of Kailua-Kona with kidnapping, first-degree terroristic threatening, harassment and two counts of second-degree assault. His bail was set at $11,250.
He was held at the Kona police cellblock until his initial court appearance today.
The charges stem from an incident Thursday night at the intersection of Alii Drive and Kahakai Road across from the Coconut Grove shopping complex.
Officers responding to a 10:10 p.m. call found a 43-year-old Kailua-Kona man with stab wounds to his abdomen and back and a 38-year-old Kailua-Kona man with a stab wound to his abdomen being treated by Fire Department medics.
Both men were taken to Kona Community Hospital, where they were treated for their injuries and released.
Dalton was arrested several minutes later in Kailua-Kona.
