Hawaii Island police have rearrested a Ka‘u man charged with attempted murder and other offenses in connection with a stabbing May 10 in the vicinity of James Kealoha Beach Park in Hilo.
Today, detectives arrested 46-year-old Ocean View resident Paul Gibson in 3rd District Court in Hilo. Gibson, who was free on $374,000 bail, had appeared in court for the continuation of a preliminary hearing to determine if prosecutors had enough evidence to take him to trial. The preliminary hearing was no longer necessary because a grand jury indicted Gibson on Wednesday for attempted second-degree murder, third-degree assault, two counts of terroristic threatening, five firearm offenses, and resisting an order to stop, according to the Hawaii Police Department.
His bail was increased to $700,000. He is being held at the Hilo police cellblock until his arraignment Friday.
