Asa Yamashita was a soft-spoken English teacher from Waianae High School. As she was sitting on a bench eating saimin (Hawaiian noodle soup) outside the Ewa Town Center, Asa was brutally stabbed by a 25 year old unidentified shirtless Filipino man (UPDATE: He was not Filipino, the man was Samoan named Tittleman Fauatea) in broad daylight, in front of shocked on-lookers.
Here's the full news report KGMB9:
The suspect is now under custody by the Kapolei Police. This is a very unfortunate incident because Asa Yamashita seemed to be a good educator to her students. The police should be watchful enough about these random k1-llers who lurk and just stab anyone like that.
