Correction officers fearing for their lives after two attacks

NEW YORK — In under 24 hours, two correction officers were attacked.

On Tuesday night, Jose Muniz, one of the five men convicted in the murder of Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz, allegedly attacked a correction officer at the Manhattan Detention Center, dislocating the officer's shoulder.

The next day,  a Rikers inmate allegedly lured a female correction officer into a pantry and choked her.
