LUCAS COUNTY (WTOL) - The names of four prison guards stabbed at the Toledo Correctional Institute have been released.

Authorities say the men were trying to move a prisoner into a segregation unit when the inmate, who's serving a life sentence for murder, stabbed them with a homemade weapon.

The guards are identified as John Panuto, Gary Cooper, Charles Art, and Wendell Charles.

They were all treated and released from Saint Vincent Mercy Medical Center.
