A juvenile, with the help of a youth counselor, escapes from the custody of a privately operated juvenile facility in Baltimore County and both have been arrested.

The youth counselor is identified as Tyra Greenfield, 26 of the unit block of Surrey Lane in White Marsh.  Greenfield is charged with harboring and sexual child abuse.  She was an employee of the facility, where the juvenile was being held.  

The juvenile escapee was arrested in Laurel, Delaware yesterday around 10 a.m. by the Laurel Police Department and later transported to the Lower Eastern Shore Juvenile Center in Maryland. It is the policy of the Maryland State Police to not identify victims of sex crimes.  The juvenile will remain anonymous. The juvenile will be charged as a juvenile for escape.

Maryland state troopers from the Golden Ring Barrack and the Maryland State Police State Apprehension Team began tracking the juvenile on Monday, Sept. 28, after he fled the custody of a staff member.  Police investigators learned that the escapee used Greenfield’s cell phone to contact family members. It was also learned that the escapee and Greenfield had sexual relations the night prior to their arrests.
