4 C.O.’s at the Alger Correctional Facility are recovering after being attacked by inmates.
The state Department of Corrections says it happened at about 4:30 Sunday afternoon in a common area at the prison.
The corrections officers were seriously hurt, with facial and head wounds.
But none of their injuries were life-threatening.
The Department says one specific inmate went after a C.O. and then several other inmates followed.
The prison’s name might not be familiar because it’s not officially called Alger Max anymore.
It was downgraded from a Level 5 facility to a Level 4 prison last June, so it’s no longer a maximum-security facility.
