ST. ALBANS, Vt. - An inmate at the Northwestern State Correctional Facility is accused of assaulting two officers within a week.

On May 27, Mitchell again covered the window of the door to his cell. Police say when officers entered to remove the object, Mitchell punched Correctional Officer Ross Boudreau in the head. 

Both officers were treated at the facility with minor injuries.
