DAILYKENN.com -- Correctional Officer Terry Breedlove remains hospitalized in serious condition after inmates rescued him from a brutal attack by a jailed Muslim.
Reports say Abdinjib Ibraham, 28, pounded the officer on the head with a seat he pried from a stool. The Muslim shouted “Allahu akbar” as he beat the officer.
Breedlove suffered brain injuries and injuries to two vertebrae during the beating.
Clallam Bay Corrections Center was placed on lock down.
The attack occurred Jan. 25, 2016.
A Clallam Bay Corrections Center officer who suffered serious head injuries last week continued to improve but remained hospitalized Monday.
Correctional Officer Terry Breedlove remained at Forks Community Hospital and will remain there until he can walk, according to his family.
“He's going to be here longer, I think,” said Breedlove's mother, Joanne Spaulding.
Breedlove suffered a brain injury during an attack Jan. 25 by inmate Abdinjib Ibraham, 28, of King County, investigators said.
An MRI was performed on Breedlove on Saturday. It showed injuries to two vertebrae, Spaulding said.
Breedlove can stand but experiences difficulty once standing, she said.
Remains on lockdown
The prison, which holds 900 inmates, went on lockdown after the attack and remained on lockdown Monday.
Inmates are confined to their cells and there is no visitation.
Ibraham said “Allahu akbar” (an Islamic phrase meaning “God is greater”) twice — once when he hit the guard, and again after the attack, said Brian King, chief criminal deputy for the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Ed Anderson, the West End supervisor for the Sheriff's Office who is in charge of the investigation into the attack, said he spent most of Monday interviewing witnesses in the prison.
“We're still gathering information,” Anderson said.
Breedlove was on duty in a medium-security portion of the prison when he was attacked, Anderson said.
Ibraham had pried a round metal seat off a stool in a cell and repeatedly hit Breedlove over the head with it until other inmates stopped the attack, investigators have said.
Security cameras were not working at the time, investigators have said.
Prison officials said the cameras have since become operational.
Ibraham, who was serving a King County sentence for four counts of vehicular assault, driving under the influence, second-degree taking a motor vehicle and first-degree robbery, has been transferred to Walla Walla. — peninsuladailynews.com
