Prisoner only ‘acting up’ in what looks like escape bid

2013-11-08 00:00

BARELY a week after a prisoner had to be talked down from the prison roof, another inmate had to be subdued after he attempted to scale steel bars in the courtyard outside the cells at the Westville Prison’s Medium B section yesterday morning.

“While waiting for him to state the complaint, he started acting up. He climbed onto the steel net, but was brought down. He had since been taken to the prison hospital where he was sedated.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
