KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii -

Big Island police have charged a Kona man with several offenses in connection with a stabbing incident last week in Kailua-Kona.

On Saturday evening, detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section 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 on Monday.

The charges stemmed from an incident Thursday at the intersection of Ali'i Drive and Kahakai Road across from the Coconut Grove shopping complex.

Responding to a 10:10 p.m. call, officers discovered a 43-year-old Kailua-Kona man with a laceration to his abdomen and back and a 38-year-old Kailua-Kona man with a laceration to his abdomen being treated by Fire Department rescue personnel.

Both men were taken to Kona Community Hospital, where they were treated for their injuries and then released.

Dalton was arrested several minutes later in Kailua-Kona and taken to the Kona cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.
