POLICE are on the hunt for an accused murder who managed to pull off a Hollywood-style escape from the 12th-floor of a county jail using a makeshift rope made of tied-up bed sheets.
The escapees, Pablo Daniel Robledo, 34, and Jose Balentin Hernandez, 33, broke a window on the 12th-floor of an Oklahoma County jail Friday morning, and used tied-up bed sheets to shimmer down the facility.
Police said Hernandez and Robledo were both absent from the facility, with video showing Robledo south of the jail around 5:25am.
Just before 7am, the Oklahoma City Police Department notified jail staff they detained Hernandez, who broke his leg after jumping from the fourth floor, jail officials told KOCO-TV.
Hernandez, who is accused of rape, indecent exposure and burglary, was found walking with a leg injury and was arrested by police after attempting to steal a truck, Mac Mullings, programs and services coordinator at the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, told The Oklahoman.
Hernandez was taken to OU Medical Center for treatment, Mullings told the outlet.
