|Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage locked down after staff is attacked|
State officials say the maximum-security Columbia Correctional Institution remains locked down following an assault on a staff member.
The Department of Corrections says the lockdown, which restricts prisoners’ movement, began after an assault Friday. Corrections spokeswoman Clare Hendricks says there were also two additional and separate staff assaults at the Portage prison in the past weeks.
Hendricks says DOC is working with law enforcement to investigate the latest assault, but no other details about the incidents are being released.
