As other correctional officers at the Anna M. Kross facility tried to get the inmate to stop and release the C.O., some took matters into their own hands and freed the officer the inmate had held captive. A slim inmate slipped into a “station” bubble through a small crack and opened the door, after which, her fellow inmates rushed into the room and held down Young. Young is serving a 5 to 10 year jail bid for raping a 13 year old girl in 2007.
A correctional officer has a lot to be thankful for…but not from the people she would expect to save her life. According to the NY Daily News, an inmate named Raleek Young locked a female correctional officer in a room while he choked her and masturbated. The C.O. was treated after the attack and subsequently released. New York City Correction Officers Benevolent Association President Norman Seabrook was appreciative to the inmates for saving the correctional officer.
