April 12, 2020: An uprising involving at least eight detainees occurred on the evening of Sunday, April 12, 2020, at the Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn, New York. The incident was in response to a recent policy to transfer youth detainees due to COVID-19. According to one source, youth detained at the Center “managed to break out of their cells, access a supply room, turn mops into weapons, and beat several guards, one so badly they needed stitches.”
