A Roxbury Correctional Institution inmate is under investigation for an attempted assault on a correctional officer Thursday night, a Maryland Division of Correction spokesman said Friday.

Public Information Officer George Gregory said the correctional officer was treated for bruises to her chest and elbow, but did not require hospitalization.

The incident happened at 8:05 p.m. at the prison south of Hagerstown, he said.

Gregory said the officer called for assistance and that other correctional officers were able to take the inmate into custody.

As of Friday afternoon, the inmate was in segregation at another prison in the state's prison complex near Hagerstown pending the investigation, Gregory said.
