Authorities say the teen escaped from the New Beginnings Youth Development Center in Laurel, Md. after attacking a guard and stealing his vehicle. He was stopped by police Monday afternoon.

D.C.'s Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services is not releasing additional details about where the teen was found or where he is being held. In a statement, acting director Neil Stanley says only that he would like to express appreciation to the Metropolitan Police Department for returning the teen safely.

This was the third escape from the New Beginnings facility since it opened in 2009. There have been questions about the security of the facility, and authorities doubled overnight staffing in April after the recent escape incident.
