HMP Birmingham: Attack on guards

From ze press (20 Jan):

A prisoner injured three HMP Birmingham officers in a “frenzied” attack with broken glass after they came to his cell to given him his lunch, a court heard.

One of the slashing blows cut through the tendons and nerves down to the bone of one of the officers’ arms, Birmingham Crown Court was told.

Ahmed Al-Sharif, 53, of no fixed address, denied two charges of wounding with intent and three of assault. Jason Pegg, prosecuting, said Al-Sharif was being kept on the jail’s hospital wing and, in early November 2012, had embarked on a “dirty protest” and was regularly abusive to staff.

Mr Pegg said the prisoner armed himself with a shard of glass, wrapped in a piece of fabric, and attacked officer Robert Belcham as soon as he came through the door.

“The defendant then started a flailing attack, waving his arms around,” Mr Pegg said. “He was in a frenzy.”

Mr Pegg said Al-Sharif slashed the same officer again on his arm and also injured his two colleagues when they came to help. A fourth officer who came in to the cell after the alarm was sounded was also hurt, the court heard.

Mr Pegg said Al-Sharif punched and scratched another officer three days earlier after being found “ranting and raving” as he was served a meal.

On that occasion, Al-Sharif punched the guard using “all of his might,” it was claimed.

Mr Pegg said the defendant then grabbed the officer and scratched his face. After that, he said, Al-Sharif had smashed up his TV.
