Cook County Jail inmate stabbed

Sunday, April 16, 2006
Chicago Sun-Times

An inmate was hospitalized Sunday after being stabbed inside a maximum security wing of Cook County Jail.

The assault occurred at around noon Sunday in Division IX of Cook County Jail, located on the 2800 block of West 31st Street, according to Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford.

The fight was the second fight involving inmates in as many days.

The inmate, Anthony Davis, 33, verbally quarreled with another man believed to be a rival gang member who stabbed him with a homemade knife, according to Cook County sheriff's office spokeswoman Sally Daly.

Davis was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in "stable" condition, Daly said. He suffered a stab wound to the upper left area of his shoulder near his neck, she said. The injury was not considered life-threatening, Daly added.

The stabbing occurred in the dayroom of Division IX, which houses inmates awaiting trial for serious offenses, Daly said. The tier of the division where the assualt occurred was on "lockdown," she said. Lockdown means that all inmates must remain in their cells until further notice, Daly said.

A fight in Division 11 of Cook County Jail Saturday evening prompted officials to lockdown the tier where that disturbance occurred, but it did not affect Division IX, where Sunday's stabbing happened, Daly said.

Davis was awaiting trial for armed robbery and has been in Cook County Jail since Nov. 11, 2005, she said.
