Correctional officer stabbed by inmate at Fresno County jail

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A correctional officer at the Fresno County jail was stabbed Saturday afternoon by an inmate, according to the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say Daniel Telles, 27, attacked the officer with a hand-made weapon around 4:00 p.m., stabbing him behind the left ear before staff members were able to restrain him.

The officer was transported to Community Regional Medical Center and has since been released.

Telles was also the suspect in an officer-involved shooting in February when authorities say he pointed a gun at police.

According to the jail, Telles's bail is now set at $595,000 for the attack.

The officer is now back at the jail being interviewed about what happened.
