Six inmates charged over prison assault

Six prisoners have been charged with an assault that left four Paremoremo inmates with stab wounds in a gang fight earlier this month.

A 38 year-old and a 20 year-old are facing three charges each of injuring with intent while four others aged between 21 and 27 have one charge of injuring with intent.

Police have poured over security camera footage from the maximum security prison.

Sources told the Herald two weeks ago that the fight was sparked by a dispute between members of the Killer Beez and the Mongrel Mob.

A number of weapons, believed to be homemade knives, were found in prison cells following a lockdown period.
