Jail Assault

Posted on 18th December 2013 at 17:04

The Sheriff’s Office is investigating an inmate-on-inmate assault reported yesterday afternoon at the Cowlitz County Jail. Jail staff reported the incident just before 4 pm, saying that a 23 year-old male inmate needed treatment for a wound to his head. That person was taken to St. John Medical Center for treatment; it’s noted that he was conscious and breathing, and that the wound is not thought to be serious. Deputies haven’t determined what led to the fight; no charges have been announced at this time.
