Teen who escaped from Ringwood facility back in custody

One of the three teens who escaped from a Ringwood juvenile detention center is back in custody after being found in Newark.



Police say the three teens will face many charges, including kidnapping. 



The juveniles escaped from the Green Residential Community Home in Ringwood last week after allegedly attacking an employee and stealing his vehicle. A woman was asleep in the back seat at the time.



Authorities eventually found the vehicle in Newark. The woman was unharmed.



The teen was taken to the Essex County Juvenile Detention Center, where a judge will determine his sentencing.



Police are still looking for the other two teens.
