PROLE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an escaped prisoner captured in central Iowa was found under a house porch.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says 37-year-old Kenny Bevard was found Friday hiding under a residence in Prole, a small community just south of Des Moines.

Authorities say Bevard suffered minor injuries from resisting a K-9 used to bring him out. He was treated and taken to the Polk County Jail. Authorities say several charges are pending.

Another individual, 41-year-old Casey Joe Risius, was arrested and faces charges for allegedly aiding and abetting Bevard.

Authorities say Bevard was being driven Thursday to Adel in adjacent Dallas County for a court hearing. He escaped handcuffed from a Dallas County sheriff’s vehicle.
