Police are searching for three men in connection with a violent attempted murder case in Honolulu.
A 25-year-old man was slashed by a machete just before 9 p.m. Saturday, May 13, near Queen Emma Street and Vineyard Boulevard.
Police say the victim was attacked by three men he didn’t know. One pulled out a machete and slashed the victim multiple times, causing injuries to his entire body.
Police did not provide any other details of the suspects, and there’s been no word on the victim’s condition.
A neighborhood board member tells us police have recently stepped up foot patrols in the area.
“It’s crazy. It’s scary. We haven’t heard of a machete attack. This is the first,” said Chu Lan Shubert-Kwock, a member of the Downtown/Chinatown Neighborhood Board. “I did see myself there are more patrol officers.”
Anyone with information on the attack should contact police.
