Former gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar assaulted while in prison

Larry Nassar was convicted of sexually assaulting members of the U.S. gymnastics team.

According to a source, Nassar was stabbed six times in the back and neck on Sunday afternoon. He suffered what a source described as “serious injuries,” including apparent collapsed lungs.

He is listed in stable condition, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

The Bureau of Prisons confirmed that a prisoner was assaulted on Sunday at the U.S. Penitentiary Coleman II, a high-security federal facility in Florida, and said no one else was injured.

According to a source, officials have identified at least one suspect, a fellow inmate, and are reviewing evidence, including footage, to determine if anyone else was involved.

The guards protecting Nassar were working overtime, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The source said this was partly due to understaffing at the Bureau of Prisons.

Nassar is housed in a unit with all inmates convicted of sexual assaults, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Nassar was convicted of sexually assaulting members of the U.S. gymnastics team. He is currently serving a lengthy sentence, totaling hundreds of years, at USP Coleman.
