RALEIGH -- Two employees are out of the hospital Wednesday night after an attack at the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women in Raleigh.
The NC Department of Public Safety says the two suffered non-life threatening injuries while making rounds when they were assaulted by an individual who was housed as a [temporary housed prisoner] at the prison. Staff contained the situation quickly. Both employees were treated and released from outside medical care.
A source tells Spectrum News that one of the workers was bitten on the finger.
Local law enforcement is investigating.
The identity of the prisoner has not been released yet, pending further charges.
This attack comes four months after a deadly inmate attack at a prison in Pasquotank County.
