Officers then discovered a second victim identified as Carlos Kosam along the roadway of Chalan Okso Familian Fanatanon. Kosam had been stabbed in the back. Kosam survived his attack after being transported to GMH. After interviewing witnesses police detectives arrested Twency Luku. They found Twency at home appearing freshly showered. Twency consented to a search and officers recovered a yellow t-shirt with what appeared to be human blood stains. Twency also showed detectives the knife that he had used to stab both men.

Twency told the officer that he had gotten into a disagreement with Anderson. He told officers that Anderson threw a tire iron at him and then attacked him. In the scuffle that ensued Twency pulled out a knife and stabbed Anderson twice. He then ran westbound on Rt. 15 until he came across two men Carlos Kosam and Axel Dackaralu who were sitting on the corner of the roadway drinking. Although Twency had never met the men before he told officers that he was still enraged from his altercation with Anderson. He asked the two where they were from. They responded that they were from Chuuk. Twency then attacked them stabbing Kosam in the back while Dackaralu managed to flee.
Officer Balajadia says that officers will step up their efforts to curb public intoxication and the consumption of alcohol in places like bus stops. “We’ll definitely be increasing patrols and looking out for things like that to discourage any public intoxication and incidents of violence,” said Balajadia. GMH nursing supervisor Bill Toves told PNC that the 27 year old stabbing victim identified as Carlos Kosam is in stable condition.
