An accused rapist and child molester incarcerated at the Floyd County Jail is now charged with stabbing another inmate.

Floyd County authorities say that the incident happened on Wednesday when twenty-four-year-old Travonte Jayrell Trammell assaulted another man with a homemade knife.  Trammell is also accused of hitting the man with a hard plastic tray.

Trammell was arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting a fifteen-year-old girl and holding her head under water in a bathtub.  Trammell allegedly held the child captive at a motel on Martha Berry Highway in Rome.

He is now facing additional charges of aggravated assault charges in connection with the incident at the Floyd County Jail on Wednesday.
