A Nashua Street Jail detainee faces a charge of assault and battery on a correctional facility employee after he allegedly beat a caseworker while she was meeting with him earlier this month.

“I don’t discriminate,” detainee Ahmad Maiden allegedly told responding staff as they were restraining him, according to the police report, “(expletive) that (expletive) I hit her.”

Maiden, 43, appeared in Boston Municipal Court Wednesday for arraignment on a count of assault and battery on a correctional facility employee, disturbing a correctional institution, and threats. Judge Mark Summerville ordered Maiden held in lieu of $10,000 and revoked his bail on previous charges including an August assault on a corrections officer.

Maiden is accused of closed-fist punching the caseworker while meeting with her at around 1:40 p.m. Sept. 15. He then allegedly said that he would place a phone call to have the jail’s staff killed and that if he had a gun everyone would be dead, according to the report filed by the Sheriff’s office.

The caseworker told jail staff that Maiden “attacked me” and “wouldn’t stop hitting me,” according to the report.

The caseworker was evaluated by jail medical staff and then taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Maiden was in the jail awaiting trial on several cases, including a charge that he punched a correctional officer at the jail on Aug. 2 and a 2021 case involving an attack on a family member, according to the Suffolk District Attorney’s office. He’s scheduled to return to court on Oct. 5.
