WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police are looking for a Wilmington teen who escaped from a transport van while it was stopped at the New Castle County Detention Center.
Police say the 17-year-old had just attended a hearing at the New Castle County Courthouse Tuesday afternoon and was being returned to a Milford facility, where he was being held in pre-trial detention. When the van made a stop at the detention center, police say the teen fled.
Detectives have obtained a warrant charging the teen with third-degree escape.
