Convicted Murderer Stabs Child Molester in Jail

John Lobertini (FOX40 News) | December 13, 2010

SACRAMENTO — A bizarre story out of the Sacramento County jail where a convicted child molester is savagely attacked by a convicted murderer.

55-year-old Robert Precobb was stabbed in the face and neck as many as ten times last Friday night by convicted murderer Ruben Rivera.

It’s not known if Precobb was returning from the shower or recreation time, but the jail tells FOX40 Rivera somehow opened his locked cell to spring on the attacked.

“We have an instrument that we believe he used to manipulate his lock,” it’s actually two items; but Sergeant Tim Curran would not be more specific. “What did he attack him with?” asked FOX40’s John Lobertini, “An instrument that he had manufactured inside the jail. If he was stabbed I guess it was sharp? A stabbing instrument of some type, yes” says Sgt. Curran.

30-year-old Rivera is a hardcore gang member who was recently convicted of murdering his girlfriend in the parking lot of a cell phone call center in January of 2007. One law enforcement source believes Rivera was trying to enhance his trough guy image as he heads to state prison.
