JACKSONVILLE (CBSMiami/AP) — A daring prison escape is something that can be expected from career criminals, not underage adolescents.

Two juveniles remained at large after authorities say they attacked staff members to escape a Florida detention center. Two others have been caught.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says the four staged a fight Saturday night inside their dorm and then overpowered staff members who came to break it up.

The four entered a control room, fought the staff members there and pushed buttons that opened the front door. They took a staff member’s keys, driving off in a vehicle.

The juveniles still at-large are a 16 year old who was jailed on charges of sexually assaulting a child under 12, and a 17 year old who was charged with burglary.

Details of the two captures were not immediately released.
