An inmate at a jail in Fulton County Georgia reportedly tunneled through a wall and stabbed an inmate in a neighboring cell at the jail last week.
A report from ABC News said the incident happened at the Rice Street Jail in Georgia on May 17th. Inmate Kavian Thomas reportedly dug a hole through a wall in a shower stall to gain access to an adjacent cell block. Once inside, he attacked inmate Derondre Russell, stabbing him multiple times.
Thomas reportedly stabbed Russell multiple times. Prison officials said Russel sustained “superficial wounds” to his upper body during the attack. He was reportedly treated at the jail’s medical facility. A search of the inmates’ cells after the incident turned up multiple homemade weapons in the cells of both inmates.
““This jail has clearly outlived its useful life. That reality makes it even more challenging for us to do our job providing the safest possible environment, not only for staff but for the inmates as well”, said Interim Fulton County Jail Commander, Curtis Clark.
The sheriff’s office said Thomas will face additional criminal charges for the attack. He was initially being held at the jail on charges of theft of stolen property, possession/transport of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of marijuana.
