A staff member at the Nebraska State Penitentiary was assaulted by two inmates Wednesday.
 
The Department of Corrections says the two inmates hit the staff member with homemade weapons multiple times. Other staff members used chemical agents to stop the assault and bring the inmates under control. The staff member was taken to a hospital for treatment and released.
 
As a result of the assault, the prison is now in modified operations.
