LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Pulaski County authorities say an inmate who escaped in Little Rock while being taken to a court hearing has been recaptured.

Sheriff’s Lt. Carl Minden says Anael Castro-Hernandez was captured Tuesday by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force members from Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas. Minden says a source provided Arkansas authorities with information that Castro-Hernandez was in the Kansas City metro area.

Castro-Hernandez was being taken to the county courthouse for a hearing in August when authorities say he slipped out of his handcuffs and ran away as the jail transport van was being unloaded.

Minden has said Castro-Hernandez was being held on rape charges and was due in court for a hearing regarding his mental state when he escaped.
