A man is accused of a second assault on a St. Charles County prisoner within the last year.
Steven T. Scott, 20, of the 400 block of Houston Street in St. Charles, was charged Feb. 8 with third-degree assault.
An investigator said Scott punched another inmate in the head eight to 10 times without provocation Jan. 28 at the St. Charles County Justice Center, 200 North Second St. in St. Charles.
The other inmate received stitches above his eye, bruising on the left side of his face and ear, and received liquid sutures on his ear.
Scott and another prisoner, Robert E. Martin, were indicted on an April 5 attack on another inmate. That man required hospitalization and surgeries to repair fractures to his face, head and jaw.
The indictment was handed down by a St. Charles County grand jury Jan. 18.
Bail was set at $1,000 for Scott in the Jan. 28 incident.
