COLUMBUS — Violence at two state youth-detention facilities escalated to the point that 19 of the worst offenders were transferred to a special unit this week.

In September alone, those 19 troublemakers were responsible for 79 injuries to other youths and 102 injuries to staff members, said Kim Parsell, spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Youth Services. The injuries ranged from minor, requiring first-aid treatment, to more serious, resulting in trips to the emergency room.
