A teenager was arrested around 7 a.m. Tuesday at her home on Honeysuckle Drive after she allegedly escaped from Cumberland Hall where she was a resident, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.

Nevaeh L. Jones, 14, Hopkinsville, has been a resident at Cumber- land Hall since July 14, the report stated.

At around 6:35 a.m. Tuesday, Jones allegedly attempted to remove a key fob from a staff member in a planned attempt to escape the facility, but was unsuccessful in her attempt, the report said.

However, another juvenile was reportedly able to obtain the key fob from the staff member when they were allegedly assaulted.

Jones then reportedly used the key fob to unlock a door and escape the facility through a field behind the building. Jones was then reported as a missing or runaway juvenile, the report added. Jones returned home just after 7 a.m. and was arrested there.

Jones was charged with first-degree escape (institution) and complicity to third-degree assault on a correctional employee. Jones was returned to Cumberland Hall, the report added.
