OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — An inmate at the Lincoln Correctional Center assaulted a staff member on Saturday.

Around 4:30 p.m., the inmate entered an office and assaulted the staff member, hitting her in the head and face, as well as choking her. Other inmates in the area assisted the staff member by calling for assistance on the radio. The inmate was secured, and the staff member was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. She sustained bumps and bruises as well as a concussion.

The incident will be investigated with findings provided to the county attorney for determination of criminal prosecution. Back in 2016, nine staff members were assaulted at LCC.
