MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Montana man is being held without bond in

an attack at a gas station near Minot.

Peter Maki of Kalispell, Mont., appeared confused during a

teleconference Friday in Northwest District Court. He's charged

with attempted murder.

A judge denied bond for Maki and ordered a mental evaluation.

Sheriff Vern Erck has said a 51-year-old Ward County man was

slashed in the neck by with a box cutter or knife Thursday morning

at the Tesoro Dawn to Dusk gas station east of the city. Maki was

later arrested in the Granville area.

The name of the victim has not been released. He was treated at

a local hospital. He's told police he didn't know his attacker.

Maki is being held in the Ward County jail. It was not

immediately known whether he had an attorney.
