LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland-area authorities say a handcuffed man under arrest in connection with a domestic violence case kicked out a window to jump from a police cruiser and ran away, but was back in custody within hours.

Police say the 27-year-old Lorain man somehow got his handcuffed wrists to the front of his body and escaped Wednesday afternoon while being transported to jail. Lorain police Sgt. Robert Brown tells The Morning Journal the officer transporting the man tried to pull over to catch him, but the fugitive was gone once the officer stopped.

Brown tells Cleveland.com the man was captured at a relative’s home in Lakewood, with help from a Lorain officer who’s part of a U.S. Marshals task force.

Police indicate the man will face additional charges of escape and vandalism.
