$500K bail set for Maui sex assault suspect

Zdenek Behuncik

Zdenek Behuncik, 60, is accused of breaking into a Kihei apartment and sexually assaulting an 8-year-old child last week Wednesday.

The girl’s mother heard the girl crying and chased him out.

Bail was set at $500,000.

On Thursday, Behuncik’s attorney asked for his bail to be lowered, but Maui Circuit Court Judge Peter T. Cahill denied the request saying, ” I do find that there is a potential risk, or danger at least to the defending witnesses in this particular case.”

Behuncik is charged with sex assault and burglary.

Trial is set for October.
