A corrections officer in Winnipeg faces an assault charge after an inmate was allegedly beaten this past summer.
The arrest came after Winnipeg police and Manitoba Corrections received a complaint earlier this month about an incident involving a female correctional officer on Aug. 30.
The complaint alleges that the officer was involved in a verbal dispute with an inmate at Winnipeg's Remand Centre.
Const. Jason Michalyshen said the female officer is alleged to have struck the inmate multiple times in the upper body as a result of the argument.
On Friday, a 30-year-old woman turned herself in to Winnipeg police. She was later released on a promise to appear in court.
The woman faces one count of assault, according to police.
Michalyshen would not identify the accused, as charges had not yet been formally laid.
