Teen from juvenile jail breakout in custody

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities have arrested one of the two remaining teens who escaped during a mass breakout from a troubled Nashville detention.

Police spokesman Don Aaron told The Associated Press on Thursday that 17-year-old Kuyvonta Cain was taken into custody without incident around 3 p.m. near downtown Nashville.

More than 30 teenagers escaped from Woodland Hills Youth Development Center the night of Sept. 1. One teen remains at large.

The center has a history of violent clashes, breakout attempts and attacks on guards.

Last Friday night, 13 teens escaped from the complex after overpowering a guard and squeezing through the main gate. All were apprehended by Sunday morning.

State Department of Children's Services Commissioner Jim Henry has requested a security audit be performed on the Nashville facility and the other two centers in East and West Tennessee.
