Authorities say an inmate at the Venango County Jail in Franklin faces charges after he allegedly attacked multiple prison guards last week.

A man identified as Jonathan Sloss was charged with aggravated assault by a prisoner and, after his arraignment, was returned to the county jail.

Although official reports do not contain details of the incident, jail officials say Sloss had to be restrained after the incident last Wednesday.  He faces a preliminary hearing later this week.
