Suicide attempt at Pulaski County Regional Detention Center

Posted By on Fri, Feb 6, 2015 at 2:31 PM

Pulaski County Sheriff's Office reports a suicide attempt at the jail last night, with a deputy finding an inmate hanging by a sheet. 

In a report released today by the Sheriff's Office, a jailer said that yesterday evening just after 5:30 p.m., he was doing a security check when an inmate alerted him that inmate Roberto Sanchez had hanged himself by a sheet from the post of his bedframe. The deputy rushed into the cell and lifted Sanchez enough to get the noose from around his neck. Once the sheet was removed, the report says, Sanchez began to breathe again.

After being assessed at the scene by paramedics and firefighters, Sanchez was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated. No word on his condition.  

According to a booking sheet released by the PCSO, Sanchez has been an inmate at the jail since Nov. 4, 2014, when he was booked on charges of failure to appear in Little Rock traffic court,  a warrant out of Clark County and other charges. He also has an ICE hold, a request that the county hold him for federal immigration authorities.
