Another incident reported at Warren Juvenile Detention Center

From Morgan Hall

Bowling Green, KY - On Saturday, January 28, 2023, at approximately 6:30pmCT, three juveniles in custody at the Warren Juvenile Detention Center attacked a youth worker and then barricaded themselves inside an office by blocking the door with a filing cabinet.

The Department of Juvenile Justice immediately contacted the Kentucky State Police (KSP) and the Warren County Regional Jail's Critical Emergency Response Team for assistance. Both agencies responded to the facility and quickly resolved the situation without any use of force. No injuries to youth were reported.

The juveniles involved in the incident are 16 years old and committed on charges of murder, robbery 1st and trafficking. These juveniles were not involved in the incident on Monday, Jan. 23 where three other youth orchestrated an attack on staff.

Due to these recent violent attacks, the facility is operating under controlled confinement, which means movement among the facility is limited.

KSP has opened an investigation and criminal charges are being sought by the department. To not hinder the investigation no further details will be released at this time.
