On Saturday, Jan 31, 24-year-old Corey Harrison pulled off a pretty incredible stunt. It was 5:30 p.m. He had been arrested by D.C. Police as a fugitive from P.G. County. There has been a bench warrant issued for him in a child support case. But after being arrested, Mr. Harrison promptly escaped from custody at the United Medical Center at 1310 Southern Avenue SE.
On February 2, D.C. Police finally released a press release asking for help. They provided the details of his escape:
“He escaped from a men’s room by climbing through the ceiling of the restroom and then making his way to another room. When he escaped, he was wearing a white T-shirt, boxer shorts and a handcuff on one wrist.”
So, officers: Why the handcuff on just the one wrist? In the middle of winter, you couldn’t find a guy running around wearing a t-shirt and boxers?
Harrison is still on the loose.
