C news has been informed that an inmate viciously attacked two prisons officers on Saturday morning at Golden Grove Prison.
Sources say that the inmate and a prison officer had a heated verbal exchange which led to the inmate, throwing an object at the prison officer, who was hit on the forehead.
This then led to an altercation between the two, which prompted jeers from other inmates at remand yard.
The jeering alerted another prison officer to intervene, but the other officer was also attacked by the inmate, sustaining injuries about the body.
The riot squad was notified and physical force had to be used to subdue the inmate, who was handcuffed and taken away.
When contacted via telephone on Sunday, President of the Prisons Officers Association, Ceron Richards said he could not confirm or deny whether two prisons officers were attacked, but did say, that prisons officers being attacked by inmates is the norm.
A recent media report indicated that inmates had access to contraband items, such as alcohol, illegal drugs, and cell phones, which the ministry of justice announced it will be looking into.
