According to a press release, on Monday, June 15 two Larimer County Jail deputies were assaulted by inmate Eissa Alameri during a routine cell search.

Alameri was arrested on May 4, 2020 after the attack of a delivery driver outside of his home with a knife. The driver was luckily able to get away from Alameri, but he was taken into custody and was charged with attempted second-degree murder, second-degree assault and menacing.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Office reported that when the deputies instructed Alameri to return to his cell after their cell search:

He did not comply and struck one deputy in the face. As the other deputy moved in to restrain Alameri, he was also struck in the face.

Both deputies are currently at an area hospital, one with minor injuries and one with serious injuries. Alameri will be facing new charges for the assault.
