Not guilty pleas were entered by the Public Defender's office Wednesday on behalf of a  33-year-old man accused of holding his mother and two adult sisters captive at a southwest Bakersfield home Saturday night and attacking them with a hammer and knife.

Victor Samir Tadros, 33, is charged with attempted murder, among other charges, after police said he held his family members against their will at a home on 10820 Vista Del Rancho Drive then bludgeoned one of his sisters and mother in the head with a hammer. He also stabbed the same sister in the head several times, according to police. 

As Judge Colette M. Humphrey arraigned him, Tadros said, "Was anybody murdered?" She told him he's charged with attempted murder, then she set bail at $1.5 million.

All three victims were transported to a local hospital and are expected to survive. 

Tadros is next due in court Feb. 27.
