WAITING FOR JUSTICE: Judge Says Monsey Chanukah Stabber Can Remain In Psych Hospital

Orange County resident Grafton Thomas will continue his stay in a psychiatric facility until January 2026. This decision comes after a federal judge approved an extension for Thomas’s treatment at the MidHudson Psychiatric Center, where he has been held following the attack that left five men injured, one fatally.

Thomas, 41, faces serious allegations stemming from the incident at a Monsey home, where he is accused of a violent spree that resulted in four injuries and the tragic death of Reb Yosef Neumann Z”L. The attack has led to second-degree murder and federal hate crime charges against Thomas.

The federal indictment includes 10 counts of hate crimes, underscoring the alleged motivation behind Thomas’s attack. Additionally, he faces murder and attempted murder charges in Rockland County, marking a complex legal battle ahead.

Despite the grave charges, Thomas has entered a plea of not guilty. His continued placement in psychiatric care was confirmed last month when a county court judge signed an order of retention, as reported by Monsey Scoop.
