A Tecumseh prison inmate assaulted a staff member Sunday, causing serious injury, a prison spokeswoman said.

The inmate punched the staffer several times in the head, chief of staff Laura Strimple said. Other staff members helped restrain the inmate.

The staffer was treated at a hospital for injuries to his head. The prisons system defines serious injury as requiring immediate medical treatment and restricting the person's usual activity. Treatment may include stitches, setting of broken bones, treatment of concussion or loss of consciousness.

The county attorney will review a prison investigation into the incident and decide whether to file charges. The prison disciplinary process also will be used and may result in loss of good time or other sanctions, Strimple said.
