Three New Jersey Corrections Officers were injured
during an altercation which occurred this past Monday.
The incident took place at the Albert C. Wagner
Youth Correctional Facility which is located in Bordentown. In
contrast to its name, the Wagner facility houses adult inmates between
18 and 29 years of age.
According to NJDOC Spokesman Matt Schuman, without
provocation, an inmate came up on an officer and punched him in the
face. It took several additional officers to subdue the suspect,
and two of them were also injured in the fracas.
In all, three officers were transported to Robert
Wood Johnson. Two were treated and released, and the third was
released the following day.
NJDOC is not releasing information regarding the
injuries sustained or the names of the officers or inmate as the
incident remains under investigation by the Special Investigations
The inmate was moved to the maximum security
facility, New Jersey State Prison in Trenton.
