Madison Police said two 16-year-old black males escaped from the Three Springs facility on Brownsferry Road just before 8 a.m. Tuesday.

One subject is from Russellville. He is 5'9", weighs 160 pounds and was charged with harassment and assault. The second subject is from Eutah and is 5'9", weighs 125 pounds. He is charged with probation violation for robbery. He also has tattoos on his arms and neck.

Police have set up a command post there.
