An inmate at the Columbus Correctional Facility in Brunswick was stabbed June 20.

Inmate Joshua Terry, 24, was stabbed by another inmate in the shoulder area, according to the sheriff’s office. The incident was reported at 7:46 p.m.

The victim could not identify or describe the alleged assailant, and Corrections Officers were unable to find a weapon, according to the sheriff’s office. The incident was the fifth assault involving a weapon at Columbus Correctional this year.

In unrelated attacks, two guards and three prisoners were reported injured in two incidents at Central Prison in Raleigh this week as well. The inmates were in the maximum security section of the prison when the attacks occurred. One of the guards was seriously injured.
