Inmates Save Woman Prison Guard From Being Raped At Rikers Island



A group of inmates rescued a female correction officer who was nearly raped by a hulking prisoner inside a locked vestibule on Rikers Island Saturday night, The Daily News has learned.
The inmates helped responding correction officers frantically tear away Plexiglas on the outside of the bubble-like watch post inside the Anna M. Kross Center at 8:15 p.m., according to multiple sources
 A skinny inmate slipped inside the so-called “A station” bubble through the small crack and opened the security door. A team of inmates then took down the assailant, Raleek Young, 27, until other officers arrived.
During the attack, Young, who is 5-foot-9 and weighs 290 pounds, pulled down his pants and began masturbating while choking the officer, court records show.
He dragged the officer into an adjacent bathroom and blocked her from opening the security door.
“The matter is under investigation,” said Correction Department spokeswoman Eve Kessler.
The majority of the attack was caught on video, a source who watched the tape said.
Young was able to get inside the bubble area after he claimed he needed to pick up a mattress in another unit and had to pass through the watch post.
He's serving a five-to-10-year sentence for raping a 13-year-old girl in 2007, court records show.
