Three of five Rimutaka Prison inmates charged with attacking a prison guard have appeared in court.

Arthur Briggs, 28, Hamiora Moke, 19, and Elise Tuese, 19, appeared at Upper Hutt District Court this morning facing charges of assault and wounding with intent.

The men were allegedly involved in a fight at Rimutaka Prison on June 1 this year in which a guard was seriously injured.

The guard was trying to help another inmate who had been attacked by the five accused. Two other prison guards were also hurt in the incident.

All three were remanded to reappear next month.

Two other men, Regan Cross and Brock Norton, both 20, have previously been scheduled to appear in court next month.
