MILTON — A corrections officer at Blackwater River Correctional Facility was stabbed by an inmate Tuesday morning.

“She’s going to be fine,” said state Sen. Doug Broxson, whose district houses the prison.

The assault occurred at 8:40 a.m. during a “routine post assignment,” according to a statement released Thursday by The Geo Group, the private organization that runs the Blackwater River prison east of Milton.

Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson said his agency had not been contacted to investigate the stabbing.
