2 teenagers who escaped Mount View Youth Services Center detained, authorities say

Two teenagers were detained Sunday afternoon after escaping from Mount View Youth Services Center on Saturday night.

Authorities were searching for Emilio Domingues and Eduardo Ruelas, both 17, who assaulted a staff member and escaped the center at 7862 Mansfield Parkway around 8 p.m. Saturday, Jefferson County Sheriff’s spokesman Mike Taplin said.

The staff member was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, Taplin said. Taplin believed the pair, both of whom were being held on felony charges, escaped by jumping a fence. The two teenagers were wearing uniforms but authorities believed they changed clothes.

The two teens were located and taken into custody Sunday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office tweeted.

Domingues previously escaped Lookout Mountain Youth Services Center in May 2019 and was recaptured after a day. At the time, authorities described Domingues, whose name they spelled “Dominguez,” as a violent sex offender with gang ties.

After he was caught in 2019, authorities said Domingues would be booked into the Mount View Youth Services Center on charges of reckless driving, felony eluding, criminal mischief and escape.
