A former employee bribed two boys in a state-run youth detention center in Sabillasville to attack another boy, according to a quarterly report on state Department of Juvenile Services facilities.
The incident began Nov. 17 when a youth assaulted a staff member at the Victor Cullen Center, according to a fourth-quarter report and 2016 annual review released March 28 by the Juvenile Justice Monitoring Unit.
The next day, a staff member approached two boys in a hallway of the maximum-security detention center and allegedly offered to smuggle Chinese food into the facility for them if they beat up the boy involved in the previous day’s assault, the report states.
“The youth then entered a classroom and walked directly over to another youth who stood up and moved to the back of the classroom,” the report reads, detailing how the entire exchange was caught by security cameras. “Both youth then began assaulting the targeted youth.”
