A 32 year-old inmate at Hays State Prison was reportedly stabbed multiple times just after 4 pm on Wednesday.

Reports said that the inmate was assaulted by another inmate. The prisoner was stabbed numerous times in the head and neck region, according to initial reports.

A Redmond EMS ambulance was called to the prison to transport the unidentified inmate to an area hospital for treatment.  The inmate was reportedly conscious, but his condition is not known at this time.

Just last month an inmate was killed at the prison. Reports said that inmate Marion Luke was assaulted and killed by another inmate. 

Both events are under investigation by the Georgia Department of Corrections.
