A man allegedly ran over a 37-year-old woman with his car while she was pushing a stroller with a child in it through the Mililani Walmart parking lot this morning.
Authorities said the man exited his vehicle and beat her with a tire iron, leaving her in critical condition, and then assaulted a 40-year-old military man who tried to intervene.
The male victim was in serious condition, according to Honolulu Emergency Medical Services.
EMS said paramedics arrived at 9 a.m., treated both victims and transported them to a hospital.
The male suspect was injured in the course of officers arresting him, according to Honolulu Police Department spokesperson Sarah Yoro. HPD has opened an attempted murder investigation, she said.
