Prosecutors say a New York arts student accused of slashing a Muslim taxi driver's throat has been indicted on hate-crime charges.

Michael Enright waived his right to be in a Manhattan court Monday as his indictment was announced. He's due to be arraigned next month on charges of attempted murder and assault, both as hate crimes.

His lawyer declined to comment on the charges.

The 21-year-old is being held without bail in a psychiatric ward.

Authorities have said a drunken Enright greeted the Bangladeshi driver in Arabic before telling him to "consider this a checkpoint" and stabbing him last week. The driver survived the attack.

Enright went to Afghanistan last spring with a group that aims to promote interfaith understanding.
