MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) - A Muskegon County Jail inmate now faces attempted murder charges after the sheriff's department says he attacked two deputies in an apparent escape attempt last week.
Terry Raap, 26, faces two counts of assault with intent to murder, one count of escape from jail with force, one count of possession of a weapon in jail, and being a third-time habitual offender, according to the Muskegon County Sheriff's Office.
Thursday afternoon, Raap attacked the deputies with plexiglass shanks and a brink as they escorted him back to his cell, the Muskegon County undersheriff told 24 Hour News 8 last week.
In the scuffle, both were knocked to the ground. Raap took off, but there was nowhere for him to go, the undersheriff said. He ended up running back toward the deputies, who were then able to subdue him.
Though neither were stabbed, both deputies were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. One was released the same evening.
Raap was in the jail on charges of operating and maintaining a methamphetamine lab, issued in October 2012 when he was on parole. He has previous felony convictions in 2005 for assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer and in 2007 for second-degree criminal sexual conduct committed during a felony.
Bond on the new charges was set at $1 million.
