ENID, Okla. — A Garfield County Detention Facility inmate was arraigned Thursday on five charges related to an attack upon members of the facility’s staff.

Lorenzo Marquis Robinson, 22, was arraigned on two felony counts of assault and battery upon corrections personnel, and three misdemeanor counts of assault upon corrections personnel.

Because of prior convictions of assault and battery upon a police officer, domestic abuse assault and battery and attempted burglary, Robinson faces four years to life on both felony counts.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Robinson attacked members of the jail staff Sept. 18, after attacking another inmate being held at the county jail.

Robinson is accused of kicking one member of the staff and pushing another. He also is accused of attempting to strike two other jailers and attempting to bite one of those two jailers.

Robinson has a pending felony charge of prisoner placing bodily fluid on a state employee, related to a June incident at the county jail. He faces up to 10 year imprisonment on that felony charge.

Robinson was ordered to return to court Nov. 19 for a bond appearances on both pending cases.
