Troopers today released details about a second assault which reportedly occurred at Wildwood Pretrial Facility.
On Thursday evening, around 9:30pm, 53-year-old Bruce Larson of Anchor Point claimed he was assaulted in the middle of the night while he was asleep. Larson said his roommate, 34-year-old Harold Buffington of Seward, hit him on the right side of the face with something hard.
Buffington denies assaulting Larson. A charge of Assault 4th is being forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for review.
We previously reported that a 44-year-old male inmate was also assaulted, identifying two inmates as his assailants; however, the identities of those individuals have not yet been released.
