Stabbing suspect arrested in Menlo Park

 

A sharp exchange of words on a sunny afternoon turned physical in Menlo Park on Thursday, June 23. Police said they arrested city resident Alamoti Finau, 69, for allegedly stabbing another man in the arm.

The two men got into a confrontation shortly after 4 p.m. in the 1200 block of Willow Road, police said. Medics transported the 68-year-old victim to the hospital, where he is expected to recover, police said.

Sgt. Matthew Ortega said the two men were acquaintances, but investigators don't know yet what they were arguing about.

Police said they are investigating the stabbing as an attempted murder. They ask anyone with information about the incident to call 330-6300.
