An inmate at Rikers Island was slashed inside the jail and a bloody photo of his wound, which stretches from above his eyebrow to his upper lip, was posted to a private Facebook page for correction officers.

A source told PIX11 News the inmate who was attacked is David Morrerro, 36, who was found guilty in 2008 for a double murder and sent to a prison upstate. He was back at Rikers while that conviction is being appealed.
