The Kenai Police Department on Friday announced the five juvenile boys had escaped from the juvenile detention center after reports of a riot at the facility on Marathon road
Three of the boys were found hiding in a dumpster in the Kenai Multipurpose facility parking lot at about 9:40 p.m. Friday evening — however two remained at-large until Saturday evening, according to a Kenai PD media release.
Police released the names and photographs of the two missing 16-year-old boys and had two reported sightings of them in Nikiski, said Kenai Police Chief Gus Sandahl.
“Kenai Police and Alaska State Troopers responded and apprehended them,” he said.
Sandahl would not comment on where the boys were found, though one of them had ties in the area, according to police.
Despite escaping the facility without shoes and remaining at-large for the day, Sandahl said neither of the two boys apprehended on Saturday needed medical treatment.
