Guam - What should've been a regular dispensing of medications at the Department of Corrections turned violent.

According to court documents, a corrections officer was sent to the Guam Memorial Hospital last Thursday after an inmate allegedly stabbed him in the head with a pink gel pen.

The officer had given the inmate the pen to sign off on his medications when he launched forward and stabbed the officer in the forehead.

Maxen Masaru was booked and re-confined for aggravated assault on a police officer, assault, and disorderly conduct.

DepCor spokesperson Jeff Limo notes Masaru has a history of combative behavior and is now being held in the Segregation Unit.
