Regina police are asking for help locating two teenagers who escaped open custody over the weekend.

An 18-year-old man was the first to escape from the Paul Dojack Youth Centre around 7:40 p.m. CST Saturday, a news release said.

He's described as five feet four inches tall and about 100 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and a scar on his left shin.

Police said a 17-year-old boy also escaped the facility, which is located at 7900 Ritter Avenue in Regina, just after 9 p.m. CST Sunday.

Police describe that teen as about five feet 11 inches tall and roughly 130 pounds. He has straight black hair to his ears, brown eyes and a slim build.

He was last seen wearing slim-fit acid washed jeans, a red and black windbreaker jacket, and red and black Air Jordan running shoes.

The teens cannot be named, as per provisions under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, police said.
