Law enforcement in the city of Syracuse and Onondaga County are searching for a teen who escaped from the Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center.

Authorities say 15-year-old Dennis Rice scaled a fence at Hillbrook Sunday and left the facility.  Later, it was reported that Rice assaulted a student from Onondaga Community College to take their cell phone.

Rice is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weights 170 pounds and was last seen wearing a light green shirt and black pants.  Anyone who spots Rice should not approach him and should call 911.
