Mansfield Police, the Richland County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol were called to Foundations For Living at 1451 Lucas Road, Sunday evening, after what police describe as a riot at the residential treatment facility.

Mansfield Police Sgt. Chad Brubaker said a call came in at 6:48 p.m. about a riot occurring at the facility.

According to a police report, three juveniles approached a male staff member, assaulted him and took the keys to the facility.

Sgt. Brubaker said several staff members locked themselves in a stairwell for their own safety during the riot.

"Our officers responded to the scene with assistance from the Richland County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio State Patrol. My officers quickly gained control of the facility and several arrests were made at that time," Sgt. Brubaker said.

Sgt. Brubaker said one teenage resident was arrested and taken to the juvenile detention center. Three other teenagers were issued summons for disorderly conduct and were released back to the facility.

Sgt. Brubaker said two female teenage residents ran away, and are still at large.  

Sgt. Brubaker said one teenager was transported to the hospital for injuries sustained in the incident. Three staff members were assaulted but did not require treatment.

The 84-bed center offers mid to long-term residential treatment for youth 11 to 17 years of age.
