Curry Co. Detention Center-Guard Stabbed

An inmate at the Curry County Detention Center is facing attempted murder charges after officials say he stabbed a guard with a homemade knife.

The Curry County Sheriff's office says 36year old Nick Trujillo stabbed the guard Monday while moving him from a recreational area back to his cell.

We're told the guard was taken to the plains regional medical center with non life-threatening injuries.

Trujillo is charged with attempted murder of a peace officer and aggravated battery of a peace officer with a deadly weapon.

Trujillo was sentenced two weeks ago for criminal sexual contact of a minor.
