RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan stabbed at local prison: TMZ”

Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy, was stabbed in a California State prison Friday, and the attack is so severe he's been removed from the prison for treatment.

"The suspect in the attack has been identified, and has placed in the prison's Administrative Segregation Unit, pending an investigation", the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said, according to KABC-TV of Los Angeles.

Sirhan was taken to a hospital outside the prison for care, according to the TMZ source. The inmate was in stable condition.

Prison officials say Sirhan's attacker has been identified.

The stabbing was first reported by TMZ.

He said the person, whose identity he could not release, was taken by ambulance to a hospital shortly before 2:50 p.m.

A jury in 1969 found Sirhan guilty of assassinating Kennedy the previous year by opening fire with a.22-caliber pistol into a small crowd surrounding the Democratic candidate in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Sirhan was convicted of fatally shooting Kennedy on 6 June 1968 at the Ambassador hotel in Los Angeles immediately after the NY senator - brother of assassinated president John F Kennedy - declared victory in the California Democratic presidential primary.

Sirhan, then 24, was subdued at the scene.

Other notable inmates housed at R.J. Donovan include Suge Knight, Lyle and Erik Menendez, Jesse James Hollywood and Manson Family member Tex Watson.

Kennedy, a US senator from NY, was hit three times and died the next day. His next hearing is slated for February 2021.
