GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors are charging two of the four teens who escaped from a youth corrections facility in Golden as adults.

Police reports from the Aug. 31 escape, released Wednesday, say one 17-year-old escaped from his cell at Lookout Mountain Youth Services Center and attacked a guard, striking him in the head with a pillowcase full of large rocks. The documents say he then took keys from the unconscious guard and let three other teens out of their cells, including the other 17-year-old charged as an adult.

Prosecutors say surveillance footage shows the teens using pliers to escape through a fence. All four were arrested in Wheat Ridge a few hours later.

The 17-year-olds face charges including attempted murder, assault, aggravated robbery and escape. Their attorneys didn’t immediately return calls for comment.
