State police have charged a York County Prison inmate for allegedly assaulting another inmate earlier this month.

Troopers said that on Dec. 8, Saifa Askie, 27, punched 46-year-old Luis Alvarez in the face and kicked him four or five times. Alvarez suffered minor injuries and his glasses were broken, police said.

Askie has now been charged with simple assault, harassment and criminal mischief.
