LANCASTER — An inmate serving time for manslaughter and attempted murder allegedly attacked and injured two guards at the California State Prison in Lancaster, authorities said.
Calvin Glass, 20, “became aggressive toward an LAC correctional officer” at 11:07 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at the prison, located at 44750 60th Street West in Lancaster, according to a news release from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
“The officer ordered Glass to submit to handcuffs, but the inmate did not comply and attacked the officer,” the news release states. “He grabbed the officer around his torso and threw him to the floor, but the officer managed to get onto his feet and utilized his baton to quell the attack.”
Other officers responded and subdued Glass, who was place in handcuffs. The officer who was initially attacked was transported to an outside hospital for treatment of a fractured elbow, according to the CDCR. A responding officer was also treated at an outside hospital for a fractured wrist.
“Both officers are recovering at home and expected to make full recoveries,” according to the CDCR news release.
“Glass sustained no injuries during the incident and has been placed in LAC’s Administrative Segregation Unit as the attack is investigated,” the news release states.
Glass, of Oceanside, was sent to the prison on June 8, 2016, from San Diego County to serve a 21-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter and attempted second-degree murder, CDCR officials said.
Glass pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the July 2015 death of 18-year-old Jordan Luis and attempted second-degree murder for shooting 19-year-old Julius Lowe, the deceased man’s friend, in the neck.
Authorities said the shootings stemmed from a simmering conflict between Glass and Luis, who were roommates in a transitional housing program for young people who have aged out of the foster care system.

Kern valley prison has the shadiest CO’s, I have ever seen, they harass the visitors and inmate constantly, I have reported it to the warden and no reply, nothing has been done about it.
Shane Falco says
There is a rather simple solution to that. If you don’t like the staff or inmates or your treatment in prison…..don’t do things that get you sent to prison.
Tim Scott says
Maybe if you had challenged your dirty cop father when he was teaching you that everyone that doesn’t have a badge doesn’t deserve basic human rights you would have turned out to be a descent human being.

A few years ago we responded to a “911 hang up” call along with LASD. We were first on just as LASD was arriving.
Some guy is all bloody running out of this house and we corral him not knowing if he’s a patient/victim and at the same time we can hear a woman screaming inside. Once the scream was heard this guy tries to run but gets a nice forearm clothesline and a tackle from the deputies.
This guy starts screaming “police brutality” and as another deputy clears the house they call us in. This guy had caved in his wife’s face and had beaten her bloody. He’d ripped out her large chunks of her hair, knocked out teeth, burned her with cigarettes and urinated on her all in front of their 7 year old daughter who was able to manage to dial 911 briefly.
We had to check this now known prior felon out for injuries and he’s wanting a watch commander and photos taken, complaint filed and badge numbers because he thought he was tackled too hard. He kept talking about being disrespected.
It’s still amazing to me how cockroach sewer sludge can overlook their own predatory inhumane treatment of others and justify/rationalize it. However, like you Tim, if they just even perceive the slightest hint of mistreatment they complain about bad or dirty cops.
Tim Scott says
Too long, can’t be bothered. No doubt another chapter from “heroic adventures of the Foolcos that justify what a horrid band of trolls they are.”
My ex slammed my head on the ground many times in the past. I’m guilty of it. We were both working hard over full time jobs I would get off work go home attend our son…. My ex would go to Gary Lancasters to drum 5 nights out of seven… I would lie in bed worried… My son at the time was 9 he would come ask me were his dad was… then I would hear that horrible sound the key not finding its way into the door… I’d go open the door to a drunken man from band nights… I would say why Pete? Why! And he would get angry and slam my head into the ground…. My son had to see this…. The next day Pete would say I am sorry Karen I ran out of Vicodene call Dr Hallegia get me a refill I’ll never hurt you again. However it was a weekly routine. I finally left…. But he had heart failure I went to help…. I advocated for his knew heart my son and I paid for medications we cried we got him the corrective surgery. Now he’s healed and he left us…. He has a knew life and never wants to see any of us again. He lives with a drug dealer Geoff Dyott…. He’s happy he pays our bills for now… But he hates us….never loved us…. I was that woman who called police about abuse and did nothing when they arrived. I am so messed up I can’t socialize he said all the people of av hate my son and i… then left… I never leave but to get food and drinks to numb my pain these days. A once career woman now looser hiding in my home in shame. I don’t have a point. I’m useless.
And? You signed up for the job, deal with it.
Behavior problems (mental health excuses) like assault, sexual assault, rape, robbery, manslaughter, child abuse, domestic violence, burglary, is anyone serving time for simple possession of drugs not for sale? Not likely. So what make anyone a violent Numbnutz, drug? Or just not getting your way? Entitlement mindset that the world owes you something. News flash it does not
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
Well think about it. Under prop 47 and 57 plus with the Federal Judges ordered to reduce the pop. Who do think is left behind???? Ignorant maybe but not uninformed. I am not a hug of thug advocate like you. It is your right to believe in the Cool-aid. If this Con had tried this thrash in Cuba, he would be lucky to live. Here they tied up the system with endless law suit about get purple Jell-O.
Bye bye says
The only time an inmate attacks a correctional officer is when a correctional officer provoked him or disrespected him in some sort of way Believe It or Not correctional officers are not all good people you have correctional officers that have been working at prisons the 30 and 40 years who inmates respect because of the way they carry themselves then you have correctional officers who disrespect inmates and when inmates get the opportunity they attacked them I’m not saying with the inmate did was right but respect goes a long way
Shane Falco says
Well of course, inmates who can’t follow laws end up in prison and it’s not their fault. They were “framed”.
When they can’t follow the prison rules and attack an officer, it’s not their fault, they were “provoked”.
Tim Scott says
So, Foolco, this guy’s been in jail for two years. Do you think it just took that long for his “inability to follow rules” to percolate to the surface?
Or did he finally run into a guard who comes from the same kind of nepotistic dirty cop family as yours who called him a cockroach just because he figured his badge made him superior enough to get away with it?
Punks with badges are not only disgusting, they cause havoc for everyone.
Ive been to a California prison before for two years. When the cops get attacked it has to be for a very good reason because everybody will be put on lockdown for 6 to 12 months. If i were to attack a guard for no decent reason my race would stab me and remove me from the yard. One persons actions effect everyone.
J Hill says
Wow, I can’t believe I just read that… provocation… doubt it… A-hole inmate that can’t manage his own feelings…
I have they stick a baton up that criminals booty!
Ur an idiot
AV supporter says

Michelle Egberts says

Shane Falco says

This behavior will continue to increase due to inmate population. Those who are in prison will be more hardcore and challenge authority. It part of the business of CO’s dealing with the better part of society. Of course they ALL have mental health issues, right. Anti-social behavior is the new norm for this state.
And most of these inmates have behavior and drug issues, thus why they are in here in the first place……
