INDEPENCENCE, Mo. (AP) -- Three teenagers are facing multiple charges following an escape from a juvenile facility in suburban Kansas City.
The Jackson County prosecutor says a guard at McCune School for Boys in Independence was left with back and head injuries in the incident Sunday night.
Two 17-year-olds, one from Kansas City, the other from Grandview, were charged Monday as adults in Jackson County Circuit Court. A 16-year-old was charged in juvenile court.
Authorities said the teens locked one staff member in a cell, stole a car and used it to ram a fence. Two of the teens were arrested on the grounds after the car got stuck. The third was arrested at a convenience store.
The guard was beaten while trying to help the staff member.
