Honolulu Police surrounded a laundromat on Factory Street in Kalihi at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

KHON2 was there as police arrested 24-year-old Herwin Magbulos on suspicion of second-degree murder.

He’d been on the run since about 6 a.m. Sunday.

KHON2 spoke with a witness to the stabbing, who did not want to be identified.

“This morning, yeah I called the cops somebody yelled call the cops I heard the victim screaming,” said a witness.

The witness, who lives in a nearby homeless encampment, said the victim was 59-years-old and was homeless, but the suspect did not live in the area.

“I talked to the police and they were both talking yesterday they looked like they was friends,” said the witness.

The witness said he did not know what the suspect and victim were arguing about.

“How many times did the suspect stab the victim? I think so two times in the back and by the heart,” said the witness.

Police have opened a homicide investigation.

The suspect is in police custody awaiting charges.
