Poulsen’s charges stem from an incident that occurred yesterday, March 20, 2019, when Poulsen allegedly grabbed a 25-year-old female, choking and stabbing her in her hand. A 35-year-old Hilo man and a 25-year-old Pepe‘ekeo man also sustained injuries after being stabbed by the suspect as they intervened.

Another 63-year-old Hilo man, while assisting in subduing Poulsen, sustained facial injuries after being punched by the suspect.

All the victims were treated for their injuries sustained during the incident.
