Authorities say a female state prison officer cornered by an inmate was saved by three other prisoners who broke through a locked door to stop the attack.
Prison officials say George Salisbury trapped the guard in a dormitory control room at medium-security MacDougall Correctional Institution early Friday morning.
Authorities say the woman screamed, and three inmates broke into the locked room and restrained Salisbury.
The officer was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released.
Prison officials say Salisbury has been moved to a maximum security facility. He was serving a 15-year sentence for criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the attack.
