WINCHESTER -- Authorities have charged a regional jail inmate accused of attacking two officers with a razor blade late Monday night.
Brian Maurice Scott, 26, of 320 Woodstock Lane, Winchester, remains at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center and is charged in Frederick County General District Court with malicious wounding according to a jail official.
A judge on Thursday set Scott's bond on the wounding charge at $50,000. Scott already has a $7,500 bond on a charge of brandishing a firearm on Monday and $5,000 for contempt from Frederick County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
Scott faces a preliminary hearing on the wounding charge on May 17.
Hours after his incarceration, Scott assaulted two officers in the jail with a safety razor issued to him by the facility, according to Superintendent Bruce Conover.
An officer told Scott to stop trying to remove the blade from the razor. A second officer came to assist the other jailer. Scott leaped at the officers, swinging the razor and left one jailer with lacerations to an arm that required treatment at Winchester Medical Center, Conover said Wednesday. The other officer also went to the hospital for treatment of puncture wounds.
Neither jailer's injuries were life-threatening and both returned to duty.
