Inmate tunnels through wall in jail to stab man in neighboring cell


An inmate at an Atlanta jail faces charges after digging a hole into another cell and stabbing the inmate inside, law enforcement said.

Kavian Thomas allegedly dug a hole through a wall in a shower stall at Rice Street jail on May 17, granting him access to the adjacent cell block.

He then launched an attack on Derondney Russell, another inmate Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday.

The inmate was taken to a medical unit for treatment after the May 17 attack, WSB-TV reported.

Officials found ‘several weapons, including shanks made from parts of the dilapidated building infrastructure,’ in both cells after the attack, officials told WSB-TV.

McClatchy News reached out to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office for more information and is awaiting a response.

Officials have not shared any motive for the stabbing, and Thomas faces criminal charges in the attack, FOX5 Atlanta reported.
