Guam - More information has been made public on the detainee accused of assaulting Chad DeSoto.

Kakan Aimich, also known as Maxen Masaru was charged with assault as a misdemeanor and harassment as a petty misdemeanor.

According to court documents Masaru admitted that he punched DeSoto's face after he asked him why he killed those Japanese people. He said DeSoto responded because he's tough. Masaru said that made him angry and crazy because of what he did to the Japanese people.

DOC has launched an internal affairs investigation to determine how the altercation unfolded. DOC also confirmed Masaru is the same detainee who stabbed a corrections officer in the head with a pen earlier this year.

The incident occurred at the DOC's Behavioral Housing Unit.
