For the second time this week, the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services investigates an assault.
Corrections says an inmate at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution assaulted a staff member on Wednesday, leading to a serious injury for the employee.
Corrections says the inmate elbowed the staff member in the face, injuring the worker's nose and eye.
An investigation is underway, and findings will be provided to the Johnson County Attorney for any charging decisions and possible criminal prosecution.
Earlier this week, an employee at the Nebraska Correctional Youth Facility in East Omaha was injured in an assault.
