2 Montana inmates charged with attempted murder after attacking jail guards


Two inmates from Montana, US, Myron Scott Goes Ahead, 20, and Ashtin Zant Glen, 18, were charged with attempted murder on Tuesday after they allegedly attacked two corrections officers at the Yellowstone County jail using improvised weapons.
The assault, which occurred on Saturday night, was unprovoked and captured on security cameras, according to Sheriff Mike Linder, who declined to release the footage.
During the attack, one of the inmates repeatedly stabbed an officer in the back of the head with a makeshift knife, causing severe bleeding. The injured officer was treated at a hospital and released later that night, and is expected to fully recover, as stated by the sheriff. The two inmates appeared in court via video from the jail and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Prosecutor Hojae Chung from the Yellowstone County District Attorney’s Office provided details of the attack during Tuesday’s hearing. Judge Bradley Kneeland set bond at $1 million for Goes Ahead and $500,000 for Glen, who both face additional weapons charges and could receive life sentences if found guilty.
Goes Ahead was already in custody awaiting trial for two murder charges related to a shooting in Billings last year that resulted in the deaths of a man and an infant. Authorities allege that Goes Ahead and another individual stole ammunition from a sporting goods store and then fired multiple shots into the victims’ house. The infant died from suffocation after the man carrying him was shot and fell on top of the child.
Glen was also being held on charges including attempted murder, stemming from an incident last year where he allegedly shot and wounded a man during a gunfight and later fired at deputies while fleeing the scene.
