From arrest report:

Gonzalez asked Wilkins to hold some paperwork for him. When Wilkins refused, Gonzalez stabbed him with a pencil in the upper left shoulder as he passed Wilkins’ cell. When he returned from using the phone, Gonzalez stabbed him again in the same are. Detention Deputy on duty saw the second stabbing and intervened.
