Rikers Island Inmates Save Female Corrections Officer From Attempted Rape

New York’s Rikers Island is known for being one of the tougher prisons in the nation for both inmates and those who work there. According to the Daily News, a recent event brought inmates and prison guards together to protect one of their ‘own.’

A female corrections officer was recently on the receiving end of the wrath of 27-year-old Raleek Young, a 5-9, 290 lb. inmate. Young pulled down his pants and began masturbating while choking the officer, and proceeded to pull her into a bathroom and block her escape.

Inmates who witnessed the attack leapt into action to assist the officer in peril and the responding corrections officers, with one managing to slip through a small opening to open a security door and allow other inmates to rush to her defense. The inmates then managed to subdue the assailant until other officers would arrive.

“I appreciate (them) helping a sister officer because that could have been their mother, wife or sister,” said Corrections Officers Benevolent Association President Norman Seabrook.
