NIANTIC, Conn. (AP) - A 25-year-old inmate’s attempt to scale the perimeter fence of the York Correctional Institution was thwarted by prison staff.

Connecticut State Police responded to the Niantic prison following an alert of the attempted escape on Thursday afternoon. Department of Corrections officials say the inmate, identified as Nicole Goldin, never made it past the fence.

Goldin has been at the correctional facility since July 21 because she has not yet been able to post a $20,000 bond on charges of criminal violation of a protective order.

No injuries were reported following the incident. The prison remained on lockdown throughout the evening. An investigation is ongoing.
