The second of two teenagers who escaped early Friday morning from the Bridge City Center for Youth was recaptured Sunday, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Col. John Fortunato said.
Fortunato said Rashad Seals, 16, of Plaquemine, was located and arrested in Baton Rouge.
Seals and Riynell Nixon, 15, of New Orleans, escaped from the state-run detention center. Nixon was turned in by family members Saturday.
Seals had been incarcerated on six counts of residential burglary, according to Fortunato. He was born and raised in Iberville Parish.
Nixon had most recently been jailed on three counts of armed robbery and one count each of simple robbery and aggravated assault.
