WAILUKU — A 30-year-old woman who was allegedly stabbed about nine times by an acquaintance Monday night remained in stable condition yesterday at Maui Memorial Medical Center, officials said.
The suspect, Tashii S. Farmer-Brown, who was charged with second-degree attempted murder in the incident, was taken to Maui Community Correctional Center and is also being held on a parole violation, according to police records.
The 32-year-old suspect from Kahului is also known as Tashi S. Farmer and Tashi S. Brown. He has nine convictions, according to the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center. His convictions occurred from 1996 to 2002.
In 2002, he was sentenced to a 10-year concurrent prison term for first-degree criminal property damage, court records show.
The stabbing occurred around 10:25 p.m. Monday at a Molokai Akau Street residence. The suspect and the victim were in a friend's rental unit when the incident took place, witnesses said.
The woman had multiple puncture wounds to her body, including wounds to her left arm, which police believe were defensive wounds.
