A PRISONER at the Capricornia Correctional Centre was taken to Rockhampton Hospital about 11.30am yesterday after an alleged stabbing at the facility.

"The prisoner has since returned to the facility," the spokesperson said.

"As the matter is now the subject of a Correctional Service Investigations Unit investigation no further comment can be made."
