Gary L. Feliciano, 61, from Haʻikū, was arrested on a warrant for $100,000, on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014 at around 11:05 a.m.

This was after a grand jury indictment for second degree attempted murder.

Feliciano is currently being held at the Maui Community Correctional Center.

The charges stem from an incident reported at around 4:21 p.m. on August 22, 2014, in which police responded to an abuse in progress report at a Haʻikū home.


Upon arrival, police say they found a female victim, later identified as the wife of the suspect, laying on the ground with injuries.  The woman was transported to the hospital in critical condition for further treatment.


Police say an investigation revealed that Feliciano allegedly used a knife and stabbed his wife.

Feliciano was located within the area the same day and was placed under arrest.  He was initially held in lieu of $50,000 bail for alleged first degree assault.

He was placed under arrest for a second time on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014, following the grand jury indictment for alleged second degree attempted murder.
