Police have initiated an attempted murder investigation into a fight reported at Kalama Park over the weekend, in which one man was transported to the hospital in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.

The incident was reported at around 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, March 15, 2014, near a pavilion by the skate rink at Kalama Park.

According to police reports, a Kīhei patrol officer was flagged down by a lone male exiting the park, who informed him that there was a fight going on, and a man was very badly beaten and in need of assistance.

The officer made checks within the park and discovered a 44-year-old man laying unconscious on the ground and suffering from multiple injuries, said Lieutenant William Juan in a department press release.
