Three Rikers Island Inmates Attack a Guard and Beat Him on Thanksgiving Day

Captain Awais Ghauri, 31, was bruised and slashed in the attack in New York’s Otis Bantum Correctional Center on Thursday afternoon, when three inmates ganged up on him. Ghauri was walking through a cell block when an inmate tackled him from behind, the video shows. A fellow corrections officer ran for help as the other inmates crowded against the door to the block to prevent other officers from assisting.
