VICTORVILLE — Two correctional officers were assaulted by three inmates shortly after noon Saturday at the Federal Correctional Institution II, a medium-security prison housing more than 1,100 male inmates, a spokeswoman said.
Prison staff immediately responded to and secured the area. Both correctional officers were taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released, Federal Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Alicia Chandler said.
No weapons were used during the assault, no other staff members or inmates were injured and “at no time was the public in danger,” she said. The inmate population was returned to their housing units and the prison was placed on “a limited operational status.”
