COLUMBIA -- Two state corrections officers were injured after trying to take a cellphone from an inmate at a prison in Edgefield County overnight.

S.C. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Sommer Sharpe said an inmate at Trenton Correctional Insititution had a contraband cellphone in the prison and when officers attempted to take it from him around midnight, they were assaulted by several prisoners.

Sharpe said the officers were taken to an outside medical facility to be treated for injuries that are not life threatening. No inmates were injured in the incident.
