WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) - Two teens who authorities describe as “violent” have been apprehended after escaping from a juvenile detention center in northeast Ohio overnight.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s office says the two 17-year-olds were captured just before 7 a.m. Monday, nearly six hours after they escaped form the Linda Martin Juvenile Attention Center in Wooster.

The sheriff’s office tells local media that the two teens took keys from and overpowered a guard at the detention facility. The teens fled in a vehicle that they crashed near the facility, then ran away on foot.
