Camp St prisoner punctured with ice pick

In yet another incident at the Georgetown Prisons, an inmate was late yesterday stabbed with an ice pick and was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital.

Fidel Gordon is hospitalized with a wound under his left arm after being stabbed with an ice-pick allegedly by another prisoner. Details on how the incident occurred were unclear but Gordon was taken to the medical institution at about 6 pm yesterday. He is in the open ward.

Such incidents have raised questions about how prisoners are able to access objects which can be used to inflict harm to others and themselves.
Last Thursday, 18-year-old Ruben Singh sustained a minor head injury during a fight with a fellow inmate at the Georgetown Prisons and was hospitalized at the GPH.  Reports were that Singh was involved in an altercation with a fellow prisoner who allegedly hit him in the head with an unidentified object.
