Police capture all three prison escapees in Anhui

POLICE have caught all three prison escapees who broke away with violence on May 23 from a prison in east China's Jieshou City, Anhui Province, a senior police officer said today.

Cai Zhaoliang, police chief of Fuyang City, which administrates Jieshou, said the three prison breakers were caught in neighboring Henan Province Thursday.

Cai said prisoner Wang Hanyu was the chief instigator of the premeditated prison break. He died in the escaping, after he had his femoral artery injured by the iron halberd on the prison gate, and failed emergency treatment.

His three inmates escaped from the detention center. They were Guo Wenwu, aged 20, serving 11 years of jail term; Guo Bingwei, aged 24, serving 8 years of prison term; and Liu Kai, a 17-year-old in custody. The three were convicted of theft and robbery.

Cai said the Jieshou Prison is overcrowded, and lacks sufficient police power to guarantee the security. The four prison escapees shared the same ward with 15 other inmates. They pretended to be fighting at about 1:50 a.m. and escaped when policemen opened the door to stop the fighting.

According to Cai, prison officer Ma Hui entered the ward with five other policemen. But Ma did not lock the corridor door when he opened the ward. The prison breakers hit Ma's head and ran directly toward the prison gate.

After the incident, Ma and another prison officer were detained for investigation, and the prison chief and a prosecutor were removed from their post.
