FORT WORTH, Texas --
Three jail employees were hospitalized after being attacked by three inmates Wednesday morning, one of whom wielded a self-made weapon.
According to the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department, the inmates were being escorted to the gym at about 8:30 a.m. when they assaulted the detention officers.
Terry Grisham, spokesman for the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office, said the inmates then ran toward the elevators in an apparent attempt to escape.
Two nearby maintenance workers who happened upon the duo were also attacked when they tried to intervene.
Grisham said the inmates were overtaken a short time later and that they never left the floor the incident occurred on.
One of the maintenance workers and both officers were transported to a local hospital in unknown condition. The second maintenance worker was treated for minor injuries at the scene.
Grisham said the two inmates will unquestionably face additional charges, but those charges have not yet been revealed.
The names of the inmates and victims have not yet been released.
The Tarrant County Jail is located above the Fort Worth Police Department's headquarters on the 300 block of W. Belknap Street in downtown.
