Three Corrections Staff Injured

Three corrections employees at the Snohomish County jail were injured after an inmate assaulted them earlier this morning and have been transported to the hospital.

The attack was reported around 1 a.m. by the Corrections Deputy working in 4 North, the jail's maximum security module. The inmate, a 28 year-old male, was out of his cell for free time, as is standard procedure, when he reportedly assaulted the Corrections Deputy with no provocation. The Corrections Deputy attempted to subdue and restrain the inmate as other corrections staff arrived. In the struggle, another Corrections Deputy and a Corrections Sergeant were also injured. All three employees are male.

The inmate has been restrained, has been medically evaluated by staff and will remain in the Snohomish County jail for the time being. He was originally booked into the jail on March 5 by the Lake Stevens Police Department for resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, 3rd degree assault on a police officer, and burglary charges.

The extent and severity of the injuries to staff are unknown at this time, but believed to be non-life threatening. This incident is being investigated by Snohomish County sheriff's deputies. The last reported serious assault by an inmate on corrections staff occurred last December.
