A deranged Bronx man — convicted of fatally stabbing his mother and taking a selfie with her detached head — was indicted for stabbing a city correction officer.

Bahsid McLean, 26, was waiting to be sent to a state prison when he used a shiv to stab correction officer Matthew Hines above his left eye on Dec. 14, authorities said.

Hines was briefly knocked out during the assault and also suffered a fractured nose inside the West Facility on Rikers Island, said Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark.

On Thursday, McLean was indicted on attempted assault charges, she added.

Jail officials are looking into why McLean was allowed to leave his cell without having his hands restrained.

Some inmates from the city facing long state sentences in prisons upstate act out in an attempt to stay closer to home, correction insiders say.

McLean also has a pending assault case for slashing another inmate at Rikers.

Before the officer slashing, McLean was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for killing his 52-year-old mother, Tanya Byrd, in February 2013.

“This defendant continued his vicious ways behind bars, assaulting a Correction Officer,” Clark said. “If he is convicted of this brutal crime, we will ask that he serve the maximum 15 years, to run consecutively to his 25 years-to-life sentence for murdering his mother.”
