A 19 year-old Santa Clara University student is being held on a no bail bonds hold at the Santa Clara County Jail after stabbing his sleeping roommate.
Sources close to the case say the incident took place last week in the students’ dorm room. The now-defendant has already been arraigned, according to court reports, and has not yet entered a plea.
No bail bonds holds are quite common in these types of cases; people who are charged with attempted murder are generally considered to be a flight risk. It will be up to a judge to decide whether the hold will be lifted or if the accused student will need to remain in custody at the San Jose Jail until the case is resolved.
If the hold is removed his bail will likely be set at or close to $1 million.
The victim’s name has not yet been released and it’s not immediately clear whether the two had been arguing prior to the attack or if it was unprompted.
