Brooklyn corrections officer left battered and bloody after pepper spraying inmate facing murder charges

A city correction officer’s face was bloodied by an inmate facing murder charges who attacked him inside a Brooklyn lockup Wednesday.

The unnamed officer asked inmate Pariis Tillery to step back after he approached him in a “threatening manner” inside the Brooklyn House of Detention, internal city Correction Department records show.

When Tillery refused to comply, the officer hit him with pepper spray. But the spray had no effect and Tillery began punch the officer in the face, knocking him to the floor, where he continued to attack, records show.

It was the third officer assaulted by a city inmate in less than two weeks, according to the Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association.
