NEW YORK -- A group that promotes interfaith dialogue says one of its volunteers is likely the man who's been accused of stabbing a New York taxi driver after asking whether he was Muslim.

The Rev. Robert Chase of Intersections International says he believes that Michael Enright, who is in police custody, has volunteered for the group, based on the police saying Enright is from Brewster, N.Y., and other details. A Facebook profile for a man named Michael Enright lists the same hometown and employment at Intersections International.

Enright is due in court Wednesday on charges including attempted murder as a hate crime. He's accused of slashing driver Ahmed Sharif with a hand tool.

Chase says Enright has been a volunteer for about a year. He was in Afghanistan in the spring documenting soldiers' lives.
