Another assault was reported at a Bay Area psychiatric hospital that already had a history of patients attacking other patients and staff members.
All was quiet Friday outside Napa State Hospital, a far cry from Thursday night, when the attack occurred inside the facility.
A 54-year-old patient talked to KTVU over the phone Friday, saying he was attacked twice by another patient.
"I didn't expect the guy to attack me like he did," the alleged victim said. "He gave me a serious black eye. He gave me a bloody nose, bloodied my lip."
He added that the man tried to stab him with a pen.
"He hit me in the face," the alleged victim said. "He was trying to blind me with the pen. He was trying to gouge my eye with it."
Two hospital police officers and a psychiatric technician were also assaulted.
Anthony Craig Gray, a 42-year-old patient, is now at the Napa County Jail, facing seven criminal charges, which include attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of battery on a police officer.
Other patients told KTVU they saw the whole thing.
"He was wrestling with the staff," said one patient. "He hit one staff. Police came. He hit the police."
The hospital, which KTVU found has glossed over similar incidents in the past, released a brief statement about the incident.
The statement said a patient was allegedly threatened, and later three staff members were allegedly injured.
The psychiactric technician who was assaulted told KTVU she has a black eye and was with a doctor all day and can't stop crying.
Hospital officials said depending on how the district attorney charges this case, Gray could end up right back at the hospital.
