The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says 17-year-old Ayotunji Akinlawon is charged with two counts of assault after attacking two jail deputies.

Investigators say the attacks happened late Friday afternoon at the Monroe County Jail. Deputies say the boy had been incarcerated on other charges at the time of the attack. Those deputies were transported to Rochester General Hospital with minor injuries. Both were treated and released.

Akinlawon is still in custody and will be arraigned on the new charges at a later date.
