Inmate found beaten at Webster Detention Center


An inmate at Charles B. Webster Detention Center was found beaten and curled up in a fetal position Friday, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

The 18-year-old male said two other inmates "jumped" him for causing a recent cellblock lockdown, an incident report said.

He complained of being kneed, kicked and struck repeatedly with plastic cups, and a jail nurse found bruises on his face and head, according to the report.
