CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say a man being booked into Cook County Jail on a robbery charge now faces another felony charge after he allegedly attacked a correctional officer.

In a news release, the sheriff’s department says 22-year-old Jason Killingsworth was being placed in a holding cell in the jail’s intake area on Wednesday when he repeatedly struck the deputy. Chicago Police officers in the area dropping off inmates and a correctional officer working at the jail rescued the seriously injured officer and subdued Killingsworth.

The deputy was taken to an area hospital to be treated for serious, but not life threatening injuries.

Killingsworth was charged with a felony count of aggravated battery to a peace officer causing great bodily harm.
