Inmates at the Spring Creek Correctional Center in Seward were assaulted in two separate incidents a day apart last week.
The first happened on June 7 and was reported to the Alaska State Troopers on Monday, according to an online troopers dispatch report. At about 9 p.m. on June 7, one inmate was assaulted by four others, according to the release.
“Investigation revealed four individuals went into the victim’s cell, closed the door and assaulted the victim,” troopers wrote. “This resulted in the victim sustaining multiple injuries.”
The case is still under investigation.
The second incident happened the following day, June 8, according to a troopers dispatch from last Friday. It was reported to troopers that two male inmates were assaulted by six others and taken to Seward Hospital for non-life threatening injuries, according to the release.
“One victim was then transported to Anchorage for further treatment,” troopers wrote.
Of the second incident, Alaska State Troopers Public Information Officer Megan Peters said in an email that two groups of three inmates attacked two individuals. She said names aren’t released unless charges are filed and accepted.
The first incident is categorized as fourth-degree assault in the online dispatches, while the second as listed simply as assault.
