WASCO – An inmate who was serving time at the Wasco State Prison for murder and attempted murder attacked a correctional officer on Wednesday, November 23, 2016.
At around 4:48 p.m. the correctional officer was preparing to issue the evening meal when the inmate identified as Dustin McDonald, 25 originally from Garden Grove, began punching him then stabbing him in the face with an inmate-manufactured weapon. The officer was injured, suffering four puncture wounds to his face and one to his arm. The officers dropped his baton during the scuffle and McDonald grabbed it and began swinging it at him. The officer was able to grab the baton and use it to defend himself, leaving McDonald with two lacerations.
California Corrections officials said that the officer was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released. McDonald also received treatment for his two lacerations and was transferred to another institution. McDonald was received by the Wasco State Prison from Orange County on October 25, 2016, to serve a life sentence for first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder for an August 2014 shooting that killed a man and injured two women.
