Here’s a step-by-step guide to the booking process at Larimer County Jail. Wochit
A man previously arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Fort Collins now faces an assault charge after being accused of attacking two Larimer County Jail deputies.
Eissa Alameri, 24, was charged with suspected second-degree assault on a peace officer after the sheriff’s office said he struck two deputies in the face during a cell search Monday.
The deputies were conducting a search of a cell in the maximum security housing unit at the jail about 10 a.m. Monday, according to a Larimer County Sheriff’s Office news release. When they finished, they asked Alameri to return to his cell. He did not comply and struck one deputy in the face, according to the sheriff’s office. Another deputy attempted to restrain Alameri, who allegedly struck that deputy in the face.
Other deputies responded to help restrain Alameri, who was taken to the booking area without further incident, according to the news release.
Alameri was not injured. Both deputies were taken to the hospital and treated, one for minor injuries and one for serious injuries, including a fracture, sheriff’s office spokesperson David Moore said.
Alameri was arrested in May, accused of assaulting a delivery driver with a knife after requesting items be delivered to his apartment. In that case, he faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, felony menacing and second-degree assault.
Alameri remains in custody on a $20,000 bond in the attempted murder case and a $1,000 bond for the new case, according to court records.
He is next scheduled to appear in court June 19 on his new charges.
All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. Arrests and charges are merely accusations by law enforcement until, and unless, a suspect is convicted of a crime.
