The 20-year-old man accused of brutally stabbing two men and pushing one of them off the Koko Head summit will have an escort as he attends college classes.
There has been a lot of publicity about a decision to allow a state mental health patient to attend community college classes unsupervised. Monday is the first day of class.
The state hospital has apparently decided that for his safety and others, Benjamin Davis' release will continue to be supervised.
Nicholas Iwamoto is one of Davis' victims on that day back in February 2009.
Thursday was the first time that Iwamoto returned to Koko Head since his attack 3-and-a-half years ago.
"It bring back memories -- mostly bad memories," said Iwamoto.
He was airlifted to a baseball field at Koko Head District Park after being stabbed 18 times, six times in the head.
Iwamoto says he remembered the taste of blood and mud after he was attacked minutes after hiking to the summit.
"I had no time to catch my breath. All of a sudden, here I am getting gutted like a fish and I remember all of that," said Iwamoto.
That day, Iwamoto had the bad luck to be wearing blue and to look Japanese. Davis believed Japanese agents wearing blue were out to get him that day.
