FAYETTEVILLE, AR (KNWA) – An inmate escaped the Springdale City Jail last week, an incident report states.
The Springdale Police Department said Juan Gonzalez-Barroso, 31, escaped the city jail on August 28.
An incident report states Gonzalez-Barroso bent a gate in the activity area and slipped through it. He then ran and slipped through a police gate as it was closing, authorities said.
By the next day, he was back in custody in Sebastian County. He has since been extradited back to Springdale and now faces a charge of third-degree escape.
Police said Gonzalez-Barroso pleaded guilty to third-degree assault on August 28 and had been sentenced to 26 days in jail.
