One inmate from the Saskatoon Correctional Centre escaped from custody and another is in hospital after an assault in two separate incidents.
Drew Wilby with the Ministry of Justice said the two incidents took place a day apart.
Wilby said in one of the incidents, two inmates have been charged with aggravated assault after an alleged attack at the correctional centre.
“Additionally yesterday at approximately 11:30 a.m. we had an individual at the Saskatoon Correctional Centre taken with medical distress to a local emergency room, that individual was admitted to hospital and is in critical condition,” Wilby told reporters on Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, 24 year old Frederick Frank Frenchman escaped from custody over the noon hour Tuesday, while he was on escorted leave for a funeral at the Little Red River First Nation.
