Man helping detectives after prison assault
A prisoner is helping South West detectives with their investigation into an assault at Bunbury Regional Prison on Sunday morning.
A prisoner was left with serious injuries after the assault at the prison about 9am.
The 40-year-old man is still in a critical but stable condition at Royal Perth Hospital this morning, after he was flown there following the incident between two prisoners.
It is believed the incident occurred at the pre-release centre before guards could intervene.
The assault happened just minutes before visiting hours at the facility.
A 38-year-old man is helping police.
