Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff was admitted to Duke University Hospital late last week and treated for serious injuries consistent with an assault, a North Carolina television station reported on Thursday.
According to the station, Madoff had facial fractures, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.
Officials at the Butner federal prison, where Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence for cheating investors out of tens of billions of dollars, would not confirm the report.
On Wednesday, the prisons bureau said Madoff had been moved to the prison’s medical facility for undisclosed reasons.
