Killeen police Wednesday caught two juveniles who escaped from the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center on Saturday.

The teens were caught just after 2 p.m. when detectives patrolling the area of Robinette Road saw two black males walking in the area who matched the description of the escapees, according to a news release.

When detectives attempted to speak with the teens, they fled on foot. After a chase, both were taken into custody in the 4000 block of Stallion Drive.

The teens caught Wednesday escaped Saturday with two other teens who were caught that afternoon. The group escaped from the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center by kicking open an exterior door in a recreational area, according to police.

Three unnamed juveniles will be charged with escape from custody.

The Bell County District Attorney’s office charged the fourth escapee, 17-year-old Bruce Michael Wiggins, with escape. He remains in the Killeen City Jail until his arraignment today, after which he will be transferred to the Bell County Jail.
