(Neb)-Prison Staffer Attacked At Tecumseh Prison

By: John Axtell Posted at: 08/01/2017 03:33 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Another week, another attack on prison staff by a Nebraska inmate....this time yesterday in the dining hall at the prison in Tecumseh.

      Officials say an inmate punched a staff member in the face several times and when the staffer fell to the ground, the inmate kicked them in the head.

        The inmate fled when other employees arrived to intervene, but was restrained shortly after the assault, which resulted in what were described as serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
       Names have not been released and prison officials say the Nebraska State Patrol is investigating and will provide details to a local prosecutor to see whether charges should be filed.
