Now that the dust has settled at the prison, for the most part, there are other details coming to the surface including the attempted rape of a prison guard. The incident happened on Tuesday morning when a ‘ruckus’ erupted inside Tango Seven and several prison guards were accosted. Love News sought an update today from CEO Murillo on the condition of the officers who were injured included the other two who had received head trauma and a nose fracture.
Virgilio Murillo, CEO, Kolbe Foundation: “One of the things I didn’t mention in the last briefing is that there was a female officer that also got shaken up. She suffered minor injuries but they had actually stuck a piece of glass prospect sharped to a point and they held it under her neck and based on the information we received it appears that they were dragging her into cell and would have wanted to probably rape her so all of these things riled up that situation and we can’t downplay those things. I know the officer that was savagely beaten and I spoke to the attending physician from Medical Associates yesterday and he will be out for three weeks, it will take him as much as three weeks to heal so it was vicious. I just didn’t wish to share pictures of that situation because I don’t want it to send the wrong message to prisoners to let them feel that they have the upper hand so just let us leave it at that.”
Reporter: And the other, there was a second one I think that had a nose fracture or something of that sort?
Virgilio Murillo, CEO, Kolbe Foundation: “Yes and I think he had a nose fracture only.”
Reporter: So he’s fine he has recovered?
Virgilio Murillo, CEO, Kolbe Foundation: “Mhmm.”
Reporter: And in terms of that assault on those two officers are any of the prisoners facing any criminal charges for that?
Virgilio Murillo, CEO, Kolbe Foundation: “We’re thinking of going it that route but like I tell you one of the officers is out for three weeks. More than likely we will have to wait until he comes back because I don’t even think he’s communicating much right now because of the pains he’s in.”
Reporter: Do you know what he was beaten with ?
Virgilio Murillo, CEO, Kolbe Foundation: “It sounds like they all jumped him and it was hand and foot.”
