CLAVERACK - Police say 16-year-old Tyrell Escobar hit a staff member at Brookwood Secure.

The worker was hurt.   

Escobar is charged with misdemeanor assault.

As NewsChannel 13 first reported in December, workers at the facility held a rally saying more needs to be done to reduce violence there.

That was after three residents seriously hurt a worker.

Seven others were charged with beating up another resident.
