A 26-year-old Keaukaha woman is facing assault and terroristic threatening charges after allegedly stabbing her 21-year-old neighbor on Saturday.
Shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday, South Hilo patrol officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Kalanianaole Street in Hilo to a report of a fight that resulted in a woman being stabbed, according to the Hawaii Police Department.
The victim and witnesses reported to police that Kailey Kakuluike Vincent and a neighbor were involved in a verbal dispute that turned physical. Police said Vincent reportedly punched the victim in her face several times, grabbed and applied pressure to her throat, bit her arm, and then stabbed the victim in her upper right arm.
The victim was transported to the Hilo Medical Center for treatment. No additional information was available on her condition Monday.
Vincent was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening and two counts of second-degree assault. Her bail was set at $15,000.
