Woman, 26, charged in Waianae incident

Authorities charged a 26-year-old Waianae woman yesterday who allegedly threatened to shoot her boyfriend's 38-year-old ex-wife.

Valerie Brown was charged with two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening and two counts of violating a temporary restraining order. Her bail was set at $4,000.

Police said the younger woman confronted the older woman and threatened her with a handgun during two separate incidents Tuesday in front of the ex-wife's parents' house.

The ex-wife reported the threats to police after the second incident, police said. Police said the suspect and her boyfriend have a child together and that she lives across the street from the ex-wife's parents.

The two women have temporary restraining orders against each other, police said. The suspect was arrested at her home Wednesday.

Man sought in stabbing of teenager in Kalihi

Police are looking for a man in his 20s who they believed stabbed a 16-year-old boy at a Kalihi park Sunday.

Police said the teenager had been drinking earlier and was walking through the park with friends. He reportedly bumped into the man as he entered a bathroom, which led to a verbal confrontation, police said.

The man then allegedly stabbed the boy with a knife and fled.

The teenager was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in serious condition. No arrests were made.

Hunters reminded about firearm laws

Big Island police are reminding residents that hunting or possession of a firearm is not permitted on privately owned, agriculture-zone land without written permission from the landowner.

Only persons traveling to and from public hunting areas on legal hunting days are allowed to possess hunting arms, police said. Those caught without appropriate documentation can be arrested for felony firearm violations, which carry the possibility of five or more years of prison, police said.
