KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu Police have captured one of the two juvenile suspects who escaped from the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility in Kailua Thursday morning. 

The 17-year-old juvenile escapee was located and arrested at Kalihi Valley Homes on Friday around 8:15 p.m. The second 17-year-old suspect remains at-large. 

HPD says the two teens ran away from HYCF Thursday morning during a training class. Officials say they were still wearing their orange jumpsuits at the time. 

The escape prompted three Kailua schools to undergo a lockdown drill. 

Officials say the two juveniles were locked up for robbery; one was sentenced to five months, the other ten months.  

According to police records, the suspect was returned to HYCF Friday night pending investigation.
