WAILUKU » Bail for a homeless man charged with attempted murder has been increased to more than a half-million dollars.

The Maui News says 38-year-old Thomas Abraham is accused of assaulting a man in a restroom at Queen Ka'ahumanu Center last week. His bail was set at $511,000 on Monday when he made an initial appearance in Wailuku District Court.

According to police, the assault occurred Friday afternoon. Police say mall security officers intervened as Abraham was sitting on a 42-year-old man's chest and choking him in the restroom. The man was attacked from behind, police say, with Abraham punching and using a pair of scissors to stab the victim in the back of the head.

The man was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center for treatment.

This is what I hate about the system either give this guy a reasonable bail he could possibly get, or just say no bail! Half mil for homeless guy is ridiculous! Jude have the guts and just say no bail due to flight risk or find risk!

For a moment I thought that this was about the attack on a local visitor to the men's room in the Main Street hotel in Las Vegas. What ever happened in that case? Did the hotel ever fix their poor security in that hotel? There are a lot of homeless roamng the hotels in Las Vegas only certain ones have plain and dressed security people that quickly escort the homeless out into the streets.

This guy is not only homeless, he's also nuts. You gotta wonder how someone like this can be walking around out there, waiting to follow you into the bathroom. Obviously, the last judge he stood in front of (and with a guy like this, it probably wasn't too long ago) didn't take him seriously enough.
