6 detainees escape from juvenile facility

A RIOT erupted inside the Operation Second Chance (OSC) Center in Barangay Kalunasan, Cebu City on Sunday night, Dec. 22, 2019.

Some children in conflict with the law (CICL) tried to escape from the facility.

Six detainees managed to get away.

The Cebu City Police Office, which is conducting a hot-pursuit operation, received the information after one of the employees of the OSC Center sought the help of the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office.

The Guadalupe Police Station responded to the incident.

SunStar Cebu tried to get the comment of OSC director Ambrosio Ibones, but he was not available for interview as of press time.

Last October, 30 CICL created a scene before dinnertime when they rushed outside and tried to get past the facility’s gates. Twenty escaped.

However, nine were immediately captured, while nine later surrendered.

There has been no news of the other two escapees. (JJL)
