The attorney for the man accused of attempted murder in Saturday's stabbing incident at a Hilo beach park today said his client was acting in self-defense.According to arrest affidavits filed with the court, Gibson on Saturday stabbed 41-year-old David Coombs with a 6-inch knife multiple times in the left and rear mid-section.
Coombs’ 50-year-old wife, Alicia Coombs, told police that Gibson approached her husband and stabbed him multiple times in the torso, according to the documents (which at times also spelled Coombs as “Coombes.”)
The documents said Alicia Coombs reported that Gibson also pointed a cocked black handgun at her husband’s head, and also threatened to shoot her... Zola told Big Island Now that the matter is a “very strong case of self-defense.”
“It will come out that he was attacked by a very large person,” said Zola, who then showed reporters a photo on his cell phone of a large man sitting in a vehicle who he said was the man who had attacked Gibson.
“Mr. Gibson was on the bottom and there were threats against his life and he had no choice but to do what he did,” Zola said.
