WILSONVILLE, Oregon — An incarcerated man used a "knife-like weapon" to attack a correctional officer at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility on June 12, according to the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC).

The correctional officer, who has not been identified, had cuts on his face and head. He was treated and released from the hospital.

The DOC said it will not identify the incarcerated man because he had been transferred from another state and releasing his name could "hinder our ability to use the exchange program and could jeopardize the safety and security of the individual." The DOC said the man was taken to a segregation unit at another DOC institution.

The Oregon State Police is investigating.

The Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville houses about 1,260 women serving state prison sentences. The facility also has an intake center where incarcerated people are evaluated before being sent to facilities. The intake center houses about 400 men.
