Pair Of Runaway Teens Arrested Following Tulsa Assault
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police arrested two runaways from a Tulsa behavioral institute after they get into trouble in south Tulsa early Friday morning.
Police say the teenagers, one male and one female and both 15, ran away from Shadow Mountain Behavioral Health Systems at 61st and Sheridan.
At 2:15 a.m. a resident of The Lakes Apartments in the 8000 block of South Wheeling spotted them breaking into his car.
