Two South Dakota teenagers are back in custody after they assaulted a jailer and escaped from a correctional facility in Huron.
Beadle County Sheriff Doug Solem says that 16-year-old Eduardo Valdez and 17-year-old Matthew Rainbow were detained Wednesday morning following a tip to authorities. The two teenagers had been on the run after they overpowered a female jailer at the Regional Corrections Center in Huron about 9:30 p.m.
Tuesday night. Solem says the jailer was taken to a local hospital.
Beadle County State's Attorney Mike Moore says he plans to file assault charges against the two teenagers in adult court for the attack.
Authorities would not say what the two had been in custody for before the escape. Solem says the escape may prompt some changes to the facility.
