Inmate facing charges for violent attack inside Brazos County jail

BRAZOS COUNTY, Tex. (KBTX)- An inmate at the Brazos County Detention Center is facing charges related to a violent attack on another inmate that resulted in brain bleeding, broken bones and other injuries.

According to a probable cause statement, Rufus Deshadron Davis Jr., 22, of Conroe, started the fight on August 8, by spraying another inmate several times with a chemical cleaner in the Special Housing Unit B Dormitory.

That's when Davis, and the other inmate, a 27-year-old man from Bryan, began physically fighting.

During the altercation, Davis reportedly knocked the victim to the ground and punched him repeatedly in the face and head. He then stomped on the man's face and kicked him in the head, according to the report.

The injured inmate attempted to retreat from the situation, according to video reviewed by jailers, but Davis chased him down, then picked up the inmate and slammed his head onto the concrete floor.

"At this point, the inmate went limp and did not move for several minutes," according to a report filed. The assault ended with officers entered dorm and took control of the situation.

The injured inmate was rushed to an Intensive Care Unit, and remained under observation for several days.

Davis was arrested in March for a violent aggravated robbery in College Station.

The injured inmate is current in the county jail for charges related to evading arrest and DWI.
