State police on Friday located the second teenager that escaped May 2 from the Charles H. Hickey School in Parkville.

Frederick Catchings, 17, was arrested at 9:45 a.m. in an alley at West Lafayette Street and Division Street in West Baltimore, police said. He will be charged, but the case will remain confidential because he is juvenile.

Catchings was arrested without incident and was transported to the Baltimore City Juvenile Detention Center, police said.

He was one of two youths who escaped from the school on May 2. Another 17-year-old was apprehended the following day at the Royal Farms on Joppa Road at Old Harford Road, police said.

The juveniles were reported missing from the Baltimore County detention facility about 8:45 p.m. May 2, and authorities believe they escaped about 20 minutes earlier by climbing a fence, according to state police Cpl. David Hooper.
