WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) - Bond has been doubled for a man accused of trying to hit police officers with a vehicle in northern Iowa.

Fayette County Attorney Wayne Saur made the request in court Wednesday to raise Abel Quijas Jr.’s bond to $500,000 cash only. Quijas’ defense attorney, Melissa Anderson-Seeber, did not challenge it.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1rXPaYZ ) Saur argued Quijas, of Maynard, was a major flight risk.

Quijas is charged with one count of attempted murder following an incident on Sept. 11 in Oelwein (OHL’-wyn). Quijas is accused of trying to hit police officers with a vehicle. He was later arrested and treated for a gunshot wound.

A message left for Quijas’ attorney was not immediately returned Wednesday.
