TECUMSEH — Local police were called last Saturday to help subdue a disturbance at the Central Oklahoma Juvenile Center in Tecumseh, officials confirmed Friday.

As many as seven juveniles at the Central Oklahoma Juvenile Center became involved in an altercation with staff, said Gary Crosby, Tecumseh police chief. Four juveniles were arrested on complaints of inciting a riot and assaults on staff, Crosby said.

One of the boys was taken to jail, and the other three were taken to the Carter Hall Juvenile Center for delinquents in Shawnee, said Paula Christiansen, spokeswoman for the Office of Juvenile Affairs.
Crosby said there were no serious injuries reported. Three of the boys were 15 years old and the fourth was 17, he said.

Charges had not been filed as of Friday afternoon, officials said.
