Since when are 18 and 20 considered juvenile?
Two fugitives who allegedly escaped a Virginia juvenile correctional center with the help of two of the facility's employees nearly a week ago have most recently been spotted in Pennsylvania, officials said.
The Lancaster County District's Attorney's Office said Saturday that Rashad E. Williams, 18, and Jabar Ali Taylor, 20, stayed at an area Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel earlier in the week. They also were seen on surveillance footage at a nearby Turkey Hill market, authorities said.
The district attorney's office warned the public that they are "dangerous fugitives" who should not be confronted.
According to the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice, the pair escaped the 284-capacity Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Center in Chesterfield County in the early morning hours of July 13. The duo allegedly used a cord to choke a security staff member until he lost consciousness, then allegedly used the employee's keys to exit the unit. They then escaped through a hole cut in the facility's perimeter security fence and left in a getaway car, officials said.
