HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 19-year-old who went to a park in Kapolei early Sunday intending to meet with a woman he met online was instead stabbed multiple times, sources said.

The Honolulu Police Department has opened an attempted murder investigation.

The incident happened just after midnight at Kapolei State Park.

Police sources said the man thought he was meeting a woman he met online when he was attacked at the park. They said instead of a date, he was confronted by a man who repeatedly stabbed him in the neck and torso.

Investigators said the victim was assaulted “with a dangerous instrument” before the unknown male suspect fled the scene.

HPD said the victim drove himself to the hospital for medical attention in serious condition.
