Two Groveland Correctional inmates reportedly attacked a Corrections Officer at the facility during a routine cell search on Saturday.
The officer ordered one of the inmates to leave the living area while conducting a search and after refusing several times the inmate allegedly attacked the officer unprovoked.
Another inmate jumped in and both were accused of striking the officer several times in the face and head.
In total three officers were treated for injuries sustained in the melee with the initial officer being treated for lacerations to his left eye and chest along with a bloody lip and nose.
Following the incident both inmates were transferred from Groveland in Livingston County to the Attica Correctional Facility in Wyoming County and face criminal charges for the attack.
