Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the Mansfield Juvenile Treatment Facility on the evening of March 24. According to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office, 10 juveniles were arrested and transported to the Sebastian County Juvenile Detention Center.
This was the second report on the facility from over the weekend. Earlier reports show one inmate was arrested and charged with third degree battery (inmate on inmate.)
On Sunday evening, Captain Pevehouse said an “initial report came in that juveniles were loose on the grounds, but inside the fence, and attempting to escape.”
No one escaped, and the facility was securely locked down. The disruption was caused by males fighting. Those 10 juveniles were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
