Officer reportedly taken hostage at juvenile jail in Oklahoma


An officer has been taken hostage at a jail in Oklahoma, according to a report. 

Inmates at the Oklahoma County Detention Center — an 80-bed facility for juveniles in Oklahoma City — reportedly took the officer’s keys and tied him up sometime Saturday afternoon, NBC affiliate KFOR TV reported, citing a public information officer. 

The officer was delivering medication to an inmate on the 10th floor when the attack occurred, according to a source cited by KWTV in Oklahoma City. Inmates recorded a video of the hostage and posted a video to the officer’s Facebook page, KFOR reported.

Footage posted to Facebook appeared to show the officer on his knees, his arms restrained behind his back and his face mask off, according to clips shared by a KFOR reporter.

A tactical team from the Sheriff’s Office was expected to respond to the incident.
