Nine Teens Escape Pennsylvania Juvenile Detention Center Amid Riot


In the wake of a riot that broke out at a juvenile detention center in Pennsylvania on Sunday, investigators have reported that nine teenagers have managed to make an escapade from the facility. Abraxas Academy, the locus of the incident, was promptly swarmed by both state and local law enforcement who swiftly regained control of the tumultuous environment.

The teenagers, who are still at large, are currently being pursued by a myriad of law enforcement agencies, who have effectively enclosed the establishment within a perimeter. Anyone who happens upon one or more of these individuals is urged to alert the authorities immediately by dialing 911. It has been noted that the escapees were last seen adorning either grey or white shirts, coupled with grey pants or shorts.

Efforts to reconcile the issue are ongoing as state police liaise with Caernarvon authorities, intentions to reach an expeditious resolution being a top priority. The detention center itself is situated no more than 15 miles west of South Coventry Township, a locale recently brought to attention following the capture of escaped murder convict Danilo Cavalcante, who had been at large for nearly a fortnight.

The Abraxas Academy is recognized as a secure residential treatment program that caters to the needs of delinquent male youth aged 14 to 18, who are at least in the ninth grade. The treatment provided at this institution seeks to care for and reform youngsters who display persistent patterns of delinquency and problematic behavior, primarily those with a history of habitual offending or sexual offending behavior.

While measures are put in place to rectify the present situation, appeals for comment on the incident have been extended to Abraxas Academy and the Berks County District Attorney’s Office. The hunt for the fugitives continues as local communities keep a wary eye out for any sign of the escapees.
