Charges of felony battery by a person detained in a jail facility were filed against Jeffery Robinson, Jr., 27; Demetrius Hardy, Jr., 21; and Kenneth Walker, 21, yesterday.
The charges were related to an incident on December 9. According to the report, the victim was in his cell after receiving his commissary bag. The three men entered the cell and allegedly punched the victim, threw him to the floor, and kicked him repeatedly. The victim said he owed them some commissary snacks.
Video surveillance shows the three men entering the cell and then leaving it about 30 seconds later. The victim is seen before the incident with a normal appearance; after the incident, the victim left his cell “in a disgruntled manner” with his hair in disarray.
The victim suffered several non-life-threatening injuries. $10,000 was added to the existing bond for each defendant.
