COAL TWP. – Police say four residents of the Secure Building at Northwestern Academy attacked an employee, stole his keys and then locked him in a room early Wednesday before fleeing.

Now police are looking for:
• Sean Watson, 19, Eighth Street, Bowie, Md.
• David Rosario, 18, Ninth Street, Reading
• a 16-year-old male from Washington, D.C.
• and a 15-year-old male from the Harrisburg area.

Rosario and Watson "overcame" employee Kip Weir, 44, of Selinsgrove just before 2 a.m. today, police say. They locked him in a room, taking his building keys and the keys to his 2007 Toyota Camry. When Weir got out of the room, he found both his Camry and the teens gone, police say.
