Police: Inmate punched guard in the nose

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ An angry GEO prison inmate punched a guard in the nose and attempted pushing the officer off the top floor, according to police.

It happened at the Lawton Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison on Flower Mound Rd.

The officer entered Kenneth Elliot’s cell to remove a blanket that was blocking a window. When the officer told Elliot to move away, the inmate punched him in the nose which knocked him to the ground. Police say Elliot continued to hit and grab the officer.

Elliot then attempted to push the guard towards the railing, but reports indicate the officer was able to get control of the situation in time.

Elliot was charged with aggravated assault and battery. The prison officer suffered a broken nose.
