Nurse allegedly assaulted twice in one day by inmates

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

Iowa Medical and Classification Center officials say a nurse was assaulted by two different inmates in one day last month.

Christopher Kinkennon and Oliver Guertin, Jr. both faces charges after separate incidents on Oct. 18.

Authorities say Kinkennon headbutted the male nurse in the chest and tried to punch him.

A little more than an hour later, Guertin put the same nurse in a headlock and hit him in the back of the head.

Kinkennon faces two assault charges; Guertin faces one.

Iowa Medical and Classification Center officials says the nurse was not alone in either instance and had assistance from the center's staff.
