TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) – An inmate at the state prison in Tecumseh punched two staff members on Saturday – the second assault on staffers there in less than 10 days.
The state corrections department says the inmate erupted after refusing orders to stop violating housing unit rules. He punched one of the staffers several times in the head and torso and assaulted another before being restrained.
The names of those involved haven’t been released. Two inmates injured four staff members during a March 21 melee in a cell at the Tecumseh prison.
