A 19-year-old man who escaped from a west suburban juvenile detention facility late Monday has been taken back into custody.

Denzell Walker left the Illinois Youth Center, a medium-security facility at 3825 Campton Hills Road in St. Charles at 10 p.m. Monday, according to a statement from Mike Theodore, spokesman for the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.

At 3:10 p.m. Wednesday, he was apprehended without incident by a Department of Corrections Apprehension Unit and the U.S. Marshals Service, Theodore said. He will be transitioned back into departmental custody Wednesday evening.

Walker was first arrested June 4 after he allegedly violated his parole on pending burglary charges, officials said previously.
