AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Capt Zampelli of the Akron Police Department confirms that the Summit County Detention Center filed a report for the escape of a 17-year-old male.

The young man was detained on suspicion of robbery and center officials state that he disappeared sometime between 6 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 8.

Zampelli says that since Akron Police do not have jurisdiction over the facility they don't know how long he had been at the detention center before his escape.

If anyone has information about the whereabouts of the teen please call the Akron Police Department at 330-375-2181.
