Jahrell West was caught just after 1pm in the 4500 block of Kashmere Friday.

HOUSTON -- The third teen who escaped from a juvenile detention center in Houston over the weekend is now back in custody.

We learned of the capture of Jahrell West, 16, Friday just after 1pm in the 4500 block of Kashmere. He was wanted on two charges of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. The other two escapees were captured on Monday.

An apartment manager is telling us law enforcement came by just with West's photo, asking people to keep an eye out for him.

Neighbor Sheila Cooper said, "They surrounded the place, they went around the back, and then they knocked on the front door pretty hard so there really was nowhere for them to run, but come out."

"I keep an eye on everything and I had never seen him before," said apartment manager Reba Wright. "Those are relatives down there that he was in their house."

West was taken to the juvenile facility in downtown Houston.

Authorities say West -- along with Alferis Coby and Deionthay Harper -- assaulted a guard before making their escape from the Juvenile Detention Center in downtown Houston early Sunday morning.
