A jail inmate suspected of trying to rob a bank after escaping from Central California work camp tried to escape again during a courtroom appearance.
The Stockton Record reports that 20-year-old Pedro Arquiaga jumped over a Stockton courtroom barrier and tried to run through a side door Thursday morning.
He was captured. Arquiaga sustained minor injuries during the escape attempt.
Officials say he was being held at the Honor Farm related to an earlier crime and was facing charges of burglary, possession of burglary tools, receiving stolen property, auto theft, hit-and-run and resisting arrest.
Before getting arrested in November, police say Arquiaga was running from officers and jumped over a couple of fences. One resident’s dog – named Monster – took him down by biting him on the hand and leg.
Arquiaga is not the first to escape from the facility.
Upgrades include a new, tighter 12-foot tall mesh link fence topped with razor wire.
