ALLOUEZ, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin corrections official says three staffers were injured in an assault by an inmate at Green Bay Correctional Institution.

Wisconsin Department of Corrections spokeswoman Joy Staab says the incident at the facility in Allouez happened around 11 a.m. Tuesday. She says the staff members' injuries were not life-threatening.

Staab says staff "secured the inmate" and helped the staffers who were assaulted. Press-Gazette Media reports Staab wasn't able to say what led to the attack, and didn't know where inside the prison it happened.

According to Staab, the Brown County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
