Jail basher charged

A MAN has been charged following the serious assault of an inmate at a correctional facility on the state's mid north coast.

According to police, about 10.30am last Friday, a 24-year-old inmate was sitting down in a common area of the minimum security section of the Grafton Correctional Centre when another inmate allegedly attacked him with a metal object.

The man suffered serious head injuries as a result of the attack and was taken to Grafton Hospital before being airlifted to a Brisbane hospital, where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Police from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command attended and established a crime scene.

A 43-year-old inmate was charged with cause wounding / grievous bodily harm with intent to murder.

The 43-year-old appeared in Grafton Local Court earlier today.

He has since returned to Grafton Correctional Centre and will reappear in Grafton Local Court in July.
