Man held in threatening case
WAILUKU - A 70-year-old Kihei man was being held on $1,000 bail at the Wailuku Police Station on Monday morning for allegedly threatening to kill another senior citizen over the loss of his puppy, police said.
William J. McKeown was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening, police records show.
An 83-year-old man reported that he and the suspect were in a trailer in Kihei off of Wai Wai Place around 9 a.m. Sunday when the suspect put a 15-inch-long military knife to his throat and threatened to kill him, said Lt. John Jakubczak of the Criminal Investigation Division.
The victim, who said he feared for his life, added that the suspect blamed him because his dog was stolen, Jakubczak said.
The suspect also got a 3-foot-long wooden club and struck the victim in the left arm and right leg, causing pain and discoloration to the skin, he added.
The victim said the suspect told him he had a loaded firearm and wasn't afraid of the police. The suspect then drove the victim to a bus stop. The victim refused medical treatment.
