Two Maryland Correctional Institution inmates were taken to Washington County Hospital this week after they were injured in separate incidents, said George Gregory, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

On Tuesday night during recreation time, an inmate informed a correctional officer that he had been assaulted. The inmate was taken to the prison's medical ward for treatment, and later was taken to Washington County Hospital, Gregory said.

The inmate, who did not know who assaulted him, suffered head injuries, Gregory said.

No weapons were recovered, and the incident still is under investigation, Gregory said.

The inmate is expected to be released from the hospital this weekend, Gregory said.

On Wednesday, a correctional officer saw an injured inmate as the officer was performing security rounds, Gregory said. That inmate also was taken to the prison's medical ward and later taken to Washington County Hospital, Gregory said.

An assailant was taken into custody in connection with that incident, Gregory said.

That inmate was released from Washington County Hospital Wednesday night after he was treated for facial injuries, Gregory said.
