An inmate attacked and tried to sexually assault an employee of a South Carolina prison Sunday, the Department of Corrections said.
The attack happened at Lee Correctional Institution, the same prison where seven inmates were killed during fights that lasted more than seven hours in 2018. The prison is in Bishopville, about 50 miles east of Columbia.
The employee was taken to an area hospital, and was released after an examination, the Department of Corrections said on Twitter.
