A trio of teenagers escaped a Houston juvenile detention center in just 15 minutes after 16-year-old Alferis Coby (above, left) tricked a security officer into opening his cell and brutally beat him and stole his keys early Sunday morning.
Claiming the need for toiletries just after midnight, the murder suspect made a beeline for the guard when he opened his cell, giving him a black eye and a trip to the hospital. The attacker then stole the officerâ€™s keys and phone and used the keys to free Jahrell West (above, right) and an unnamed teenager. The three have been missing ever since.
“I can tell you that they’re very dangerous,” said executive director of the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department Tom Brooks. “We’re asking the public’s help to try to locate these juveniles.”
Alferis was being held on charges of murder, aggravated robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon after itâ€™s alleged he shot a man before stealing his car on March 12th when he was 15.
Heâ€™s purportedly shown no remorse whatsoever for the crime.
Jahrell was being held on charges of aggravated robbery and burglary.
Both were being tried as adults.
The third teen, who hasnâ€™t been identified, is still facing his charges as a minor.
The three escaped teens were last seen wearing white shirts and khakis.
As of yet, it doesnâ€™t appear the escape was an inside job.
