An inmate at the Maryland Correctional Institution-Hagerstown was stabbed in the upper body by another inmate while returning from breakfast Monday, said Capt. Priscilla Doggett, public information officer for the Maryland Division of Correction.

She said the stabbing occurred at about 6:20 a.m. as inmates were returning to tier "D" after breakfast. She said an inmate was attacked by another inmate outside the tier "D" recreation hall.

The attack started in the stairway near the tier, she said.

The inmate who was stabbed was evaluated by medical staff at the prison and then taken to Washington County Hospital for additional treatment, Doggett said.

The inmate responsible for the stabbing was taken into Maryland Division of Correction custody and was placed in segregation, she said.

A homemade weapon was recovered, she said. The prison system's internal investigation unit responded to the prison to investigate, she said.

Doggett would not release the names of those involved in the stabbing.

She said she didn't know how serious the stabbing victim's injuries were.
