Five inmates broke out of a window on the first floor this week to flee a Ohio correctional facility, the cantonal police said. One of the four was arrested on Wednesday.
The escape from the Stark Regional Community Corrections Center, located in Louisville east of Canton, occurred between 8:45 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Monday and Tuesday 10 a.m. according to a report by the cantonal police.
Jaden Miller, Jason Drake, Joshua Bingham, Michael Fisher and Vincent Blanc fled through the window, the NBC subsidiary WKYC from Cleveland reported. According to the station, Miller was arrested on Wednesday by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
A police spokesman for the canton was unavailable for comment on Thursday evening. A message left at the Carrol Country Sheriff’s office was not immediately returned. Carroll County is located southeast of Stark County, where Canton is located.
The Stark Regional Community Corrections Center is, according to its website, a “community-based facility for adults”.
The center is an alternative to jail for eligible subordinate offenders, the newspaper The Repository of Canton reported.

The police ask for public help, but says no one should try to approach the suspect.
Canton is a city of around 73,000 people in Stark County, south of Akron.
