SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A sheriff’s spokesman says the two remaining violent fugitives who broke out of a California jail are believed to be in San Jose and may be headed to Fresno.

Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock says escaped inmate Bac Duong, who surrendered in Orange County earlier Friday, told investigators he was with the other two fugitives in San Jose on Thursday.

It’s not clear how he got back to Southern California to turn himself in.

Hallock says the other two men, Jonathan Tieu and Hossein Nayeri, may now be headed to Fresno in Central California, where there may be associates who can help them.

Authorities had previously said they thought all three men were still in Southern California.

Authorities say the men brazenly broke out of the maximum-security jail a week ago, and one of them stole a white van a day later.

Hallock says the remaining two fugitives are most likely still in that van.
