According to Public Information Officer Jason Clark of the Texas Department of Public Safety, 35-year-old Jeremy Sadler and 30-year-old Daniel Ange both received facial injuries after they apparently were attacked by three men at about 5 p.m.
Clark said Sadler was found with lacerations and fractures to his face and was flown by a HALO-Flight helicopter to Christus-Spohn Memorial Hospital in Corpus Christi. He was reported to be in stable condition.
Ange received facial lacerations and was treated at the McConnell Unit.
Three men, identified at Steven Ivy, 31, Reginald Smith, 40, and Raymond Jefferson, 30, were all placed in isolation and are all suspects in the attack.
Clark said the TDCJ’s Office of the Inspector General will investigate the incident and charges could be filed against the suspects.
Sadler was sent to prison on May 15, 2006, after being convicted of driving while intoxicated and burglary of a habitation in Tarrant County. He was serving a 20-year sentence.
Ange had been in the TDCJ’s custody since Oct. 8, 2007. He was serving a five-year sentence on a burglary of a habitation conviction in Brazoria County.
