(ANSA) – SASSARI, 23 FEB – Two prison police officers were attacked yesterday evening by an inmate in the Bancali prison and had to resort to emergency room treatment. This was reported by the regional secretary of the PolGiust union, Elia Falchi, according to whom the man first devastated his cell, flooding it and destroying the furniture, then threatened the prison policemen who were trying to intervene to calm him down. After managing to enter the overnight cell, the policemen were hit by the detainee with kicks, punches and bites.
