Another teen inmate was seriously injured over the weekend in the Robert N. Davoren Center, where teenagers are housed.

Correction officials confirm that Aunray Stanford, 18, was injured in a struggle with correction officers and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. He subsequently released and returned to Rikers Island.

The officials did not specify Stanford's injuries, citing policy, but a correction source said he sustained a fractured skull in the incident.

RNDC is the same jail that was the subject of a Village Voice article published last Wednesday about violence at Rikers. In the article, correction sources said violence fueled by a culture of intimidation under the noses of correction officers continues.

On Saturday, May 12, Stanford refused to comply with a strip search following a visit, officials said. He allegedly struck the officer, sparking a struggle which led to the injury. The incident, known as a use of force, is under investigation.

Stanford was transferred to the Otis Bantum Correctional Center, also on Rikers. He has been held at Rikers since April 27 on a parole violation, stemming from a robbery conviction in the Bronx.
