A Maryland Correctional Training Center inmate who was stabbed in the head Thursday was released from the hospital Friday and returned to the Roxbury Road facility.

Capt. Priscilla Doggett, spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, said the victim of a Thursday morning attack in the dining hall was returned to MCTC Friday after a brief stay at Washington County Hospital. The victim suffered multiple stab wounds to the side of the head, she said.

Doggett would not release the names of the alleged attacker or victim pending the outcome of ongoing corrections investigation. Doggett said the alleged attacker was serving a 24-year sentence on robbery and weapons charges.

The attacker approached the victim just after 10:15 a.m. inside the dining hall and began stabbing him with a sharp object, according to Doggett. Doggett described the weapon Monday as a "homemade, shank-type weapon."

Correctional officers separated the men, confiscated the weapon and removed both from the dining hall, Doggett said.

The alleged attacker remains at the prison but has been removed from the general population, Doggett said.
