A Maui man was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition Sunday afternoon following a reported stabbing at Luana Gardens in Kahului.

Authorities say officers responded to a unit at the condominium complex at around 1:19 p.m. after receiving a report of a male that had been stabbed in the chest with a pair of scissors.

Upon their arrival, the officers located a 35 year-old male with a puncture wound to his chest, said Lt. John Jakubczak with the Maui Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Divison.

According to authorities, an initial investigation indicated that the male and his fiancée were involved in a domestic dispute when the incident occurred.
