The incident was acknowledged after Holder was unable to appear in court on Tuesday due to "medical" reasons.
Jansen issued in a public statement to CBS News that “Mr. Holder, Jr. was assaulted by multiple individuals while he was in the holding cell at the jail while waiting to be brought to court yesterday morning. The attack included a razor and the back of his head was cut."
Holder lost consciousness during the attack and needed an MRI as well as three staples in the back of his head.
According to TMZ, Holder was waiting to catch a bus to court for his murder trial when the attack occurred. On Wednesday, he appeared in court with stitches running up the back of his head and a swollen left eye.
