Police searchingfor two juveniles who escaped

Police are searching for two youths who escaped through an unlocked door Saturday morning from the Juvenile Holdover Facility on Jonathan Street, according to Maryland State Police.

Missing are Kenyatta Corbett, 17, and Harlen Collier, 17, said Trooper G.L. Heiston.

The escape took place at 7:25 a.m., when a supervisor at the center briefly unlocked a door to allow a night-shift employee to leave the building. The two youths saw the door was unlocked and fled, Heiston said.

The boys ran in the direction of the nearby Rapid Lube shop but have not been seen since, he said.

"Once they get going on foot, they can go anywhere," Heiston said.

Corbett is described as a black male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 175 pounds. He is from the Baltimore area.


Collier is described as a black male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds. He is from the New York City area.

Both were wearing the blue coveralls issued to them in the facility. Neither was wearing shoes, Heiston said.
