4 escapees from youth corrections center arrested

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — Police have arrested four inmates who escaped from a youth corrections facility in Golden.

A staff member at the Lookout Mountain Youth Services Center called Golden police at midnight Sunday, saying a 65-year-old co-worker had been assaulted with a rock by several inmates.

Four inmates, who range in age from 14 to 17, ran away from the center before officers arrived. They were arrested in Wheat Ridge on Sunday morning.

The injured staffer was taken to a hospital, but police have not released his condition.
