Earlier this month in Hawaii Kai, a 41-year-old man got into an argument with his roommate about food and stabbed him in the jaw with a steak knife. When two other roommates tried to de-escalate the situation, the man also stabbed them with the same weapon.
All three stabbing victims were transported to the hospital in serious condition with the two other roommates sustaining wounds to their heads, hands, stomachs, and arms. Hospital staff administered advanced life-saving treatment and all three men survived the incident.
After the stabbing, the suspect fled the scene. After a search, Honolulu Police found the suspect the same night at Sandy Beach Park on the eastern tip of Oahu, just south of where the incident took place. He has since been charged with one count of attempted murder in the first degree and three counts of attempted murder in the second degree.
Blood poses significant health risks
Violent crimes such as this stabbing can leave behind gruesome and dangerous scenes. With multiple wounds sustained by three different people, there was a lot of blood spilled in a wide area. The blood and body fluids spilled pose a significant health risk to anyone in the area with a variety of bacteria and viruses exposed on surfaces. With all this potential for infectious diseases and contaminants, it is essential to address blood cleanup as soon as possible and only by professional biohazard cleaners.
Call the professionals for blood cleanup
Only professional biohazard cleaners should clean scenes like where the triple stabbing took place. When spilled, blood can land on a shocking variety of surfaces and for those untrained, it is easy to miss contaminants. Attempting to clean up such a scene without proper training, equipment, and knowledge can lead to severe health risks and emotional trauma for all those involved. Particularly in this case, it would be retraumatizing for the homeowner to clean his and his roommate’s blood, in addition to the severe risks to his health.
