SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — State corrections officials say a security staff member at the South Dakota State Penitentiary has been injured in an assault by an inmate.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections said the staffer was cut in the face and taken to the hospital for treatment Tuesday. The staff member has returned to work, officials said.
