The Herald Sun understands at least two staff have been injured after two teens were allegedly involved in a wild altercation.

It is understood the alleged offenders may have been armed.

The injured workers have been taken to Bendigo Hospital.

Ambulance Victoria confirmed they had attended the facility after an incident earlier this morning.

Four people were assessed at the scene and two were taken to hospital.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Natalie Butler said Kyneton police were investigating following an assault at a corrections centre in Malmsbury this morning.

"Police have been told a fight occurred between three males at the centre on Mollison Street just after 9.30am," she added.

"A number of staff members intervened and received minor injuries.

"Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and the investigation remains ongoing."

Opposition families and children spokeswoman Georgie Crozier said the incident was "a major security issue and another example of how Daniel Andrews has lost control of violent youth offenders and gangs."

"If Daniel Andrews can't keep prison staff safe it's no wonder he can't keep Victorians safe," she said.

 

The Herald Sun has sought comment from the Department of Justice.
