Prison on lock-down following assault


SUNBURY — An investigation continues into an assault, and lock-down at the Northumberland County prison. No names are being released. Officials tell us, an inmate attacked guards Friday, and while the response, and investigation was underway, all inmates were confined to their cells.

A supervisor at the prison Saturday morning said he could not comment and messages the warden and supervisors have not been returned.

The Daily Item reported that a state inmate who was at the city jail awaiting a hearing reportedly assaulted correctional officers before being subdued by staff. Another officer was also injured. All three received medical attention and were back to work shortly after the incident. (Codi Jade)
