SAN QUENTIN, Calif. — A prison inmate was listed in critical condition Sunday after being stabbed in the San Quentin exercise yard, a prison spokesman said.
The inmate, a 37-year-old from Ventura County, received a single puncture wound to the neck at 12:23 p.m. in the exercise yard of one of the prison's segregated housing sections, said the spokesman, Lt. Dave Langerman.
The inmate was taken to a hospital outside San Quentin for treatment, Langerman said. The inmate's name was withheld pending notification of relatives.
No weapon was recovered immediately after the attack and there were no suspects.
