Police this week arrested a second boy in connection with a Punahou Carnival fight that injured two 15-year-old Roosevelt High School students last Friday night.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of attempted murder, but he later was released pending further investigation, police said.
Last Friday, police arrested a 17-year-old Kalihi boy who allegedly was found with a sword strapped to the inside of his pants. He was also released pending further investigation, police said.
Two 15-year-old boys were hurt during the fight, including one who suffered multiple stab wounds, police said. The boy was transported to the Queens Medical Center, where he was listed in guarded condition, police said. The other boy suffered minor injuries, but he was not hospitalized.
Police said the fight unfolded like this:
The seriously injured victim was walking to the Punahou Carnival when he walked past several strangers. One of the strangers stared at him and then punched him. The boy retaliated and was mobbed by the other strangers.
After the fight, the boy noticed that he had been stabbed. Police found one of the boys allegedly involved in the fight and arrested him on Tuesday.
