WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities have arrested a teenager who attacked a guard and escaped from a Maryland youth detention facility in April.

D.C. police said they recaptured Treyon Cortez Carey, 18, on Monday afternoon. He was taken into custody on a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant charging him with assault on a police officer.

Authorities say Carey assaulted a Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services staff member at the New Beginnings Development Center in Laurel on April 18. Overnight staffing at the detention facility was increased in response to the escape.
