WOODBURN, OR (KPTV) – Three teenagers who escaped from the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn early Sunday morning have been arrested.
Authorities said the teens, who lived in the same unit, assaulted a staff member, then stole their keys and escaped through a hole in a fence surrounding the facility around 1 a.m. Sunday. MacLaren was placed on lockdown while police investigated the incident. Visitation on Sunday was canceled, and families who had visitation scheduled were notified.
The teens were identified as:
- Preston Andrizzi, age 19, convicted of assault 2 in Marion County
- Anthony Fitz-Henry, age 18, adjudicated for burglary 2 in Marion County (He currently has short hair, contrary to the photo below)
- Christian Goin, age 17, adjudicated for assault 4 in Linn County
Authorities said all three are from the Salem and Albany areas.
The staff member was taken to the hospital, treated and released, authorities said. The hole in the fence was also repaired.
On Wednesday afternoon, three and a half days after the escape, the teens were found and arrested in Albany by Oregon State Police.
They were first spotted at around 2 p.m. by OSP detectives in a vehicle in Lebanon. The teens drove off and were pursued by police.
Near Albany, OSP said law enforcement laid down stop sticks, which disabled the vehicle. One teen, OSP did not report which, ran from the vehicle but was caught and arrested a short distance away. The other two stayed in the vehicle and were taken into custody. OSP said no one was injured during the chase or capture.
OSP was assisted by the Lebanon and Albany police departments and the Linn County Sheriff’s Office in the apprehension of the teens.
“We are thankful to hear that the youth were located and that no one was injured in the process,” said Sarah Evans, deputy communications manager for Oregon Youth Authority.
