Bail stays at $1M for NJ store stabbing suspect
FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) - January 19, 2013 (WPVI) -- Bail will stay at $1 million for a New Jersey man who allegedly stabbed a woman multiple times as she pushed her 5-month-old baby in a stroller inside a department store.
Monmouth County prosecutors say 19-year-old Tyrik Haynes of Middletown did not know the woman he attacked on Thursday, and a motive for the stabbing remained under investigation Saturday. He faces numerous charges, including attempted murder and child endangerment.
The victim, who was stabbed about a dozen times, remained hospitalized Saturday in critical but stable condition. Her young child was not injured in the attack.
Prosecutors had asked a judge to keep Haynes' bail at $1,050,000 during a hearing Friday.
Authorities say Haynes is also accused of setting fire last month to a cat that was later found dead.
