A female corrections officer was injured after she was assaulted by an inmate at the East Moline Correctional Center, Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Nicole Wilson said Saturday.
The officer was treated at a local hospital for injuries and has been released, Wilson said.
The inmate has been transferred to a different facility and placed in segregation.
Once the Department of corrections has completed its investigation it will forward its findings to the Rock Island County State’s Attorney’s Office for review and possible prosecution, Wilson said
