Four escape from Rotenberg Center


REHOBOTH – Four residents of a Judge Rotenberg Educational Center facility escaped Thursday night and stole a car, before being apprehended a short time later in Raynham.

The Rotenberg Center is a special needs school based in Canton.

A staff member from the Rotenberg residence at 225 County St. alerted police about 9:30 p.m. that the young men, ranging in age from 18 to 20, were missing and requested assistance, Police Chief Stephen Enos reported.

Rehoboth police conducted a search of the area for an hour with the assistance of Dighton police and a Massachusetts State Police K-9 unit.

Police then received a 911 call about four young men seen on New Street, but the individuals left the area in a white van before police officers arrived.

Dighton, Taunton and Raynham police were notified, and within minutes Taunton police located the van, chased it into Raynham, where the van was stopped, and apprehended the men.
