Hawaii man accused in attack; victim doused in gas

By Associated Press

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) A $260,000 bail has been set for a Hawaii man accused of participating in a group attack that left the victim battered and doused with gasoline in what police say was an attempt to set him on fire.

The Maui News reports that 39-year-old Brok Carlton faces charges including robbery, assault and kidnapping in connection with the beating.

Police say four attackers forced the victim to the ground outside his West Maui apartment, hit him with baseball bats, threw gas on him and attempted to tie his hands and feet with zip-ties in the Thursday night assault.

Authorities say the assailants fled as residents began coming out to see what was going on.

Carlton's attorney had argued unsuccessfully for the Kihei man's supervised release, and he remains in police custody.
