Inmate fatally stabbed in prison attack in Folsom

An inmate was stabbed to death Thursday afternoon at California State Prison, Sacramento, and prison authorities identified two other inmates as suspects.

Humberto Torres, 33, was killed in C Facility, one of three maximum-security units at the prison in Folsom, according to a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation news release.

He was stabbed multiple times at 1:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at 1:56 p.m., authorities said. Torres came to the state prison system from Lake County on Jan. 26, 2000, and was serving a 25-year-to-life sentence for second-degree murder with a firearm. He had been an inmate in Folsom since May 27, 2015.

Prison officials named as suspects Rudy Delossantos, 38, and Michael Robles, 33.

Delossantos is serving a 25-year-to-life sentence for first-degree murder and came from Orange County on Nov. 1, 2006. He has been an inmate at California State Prison, Sacramento, since May 27, 2015.

Robles is serving a 200-year-to-life sentence for second-degree murder and was received from Riverside County on Feb. 25, 2005. He has been an inmate in Folsom since May 24, 2013.

Prison officials used six rounds of 40-mm rubber bullets, two blast dispersion grenades and pepper spray to disrupt the attack. They later found a stabbing instrument.

Three correctional officers were taken to a hospital with minor injures suffered during the incident, officials said.

California State Prison, Sacramento, opened in 1986 and is next to Folsom State Prison.
