Third escapee captured at home in Barranca

Judicial agents and Fuerza Pública officers Thursday afternoon detained the third of four prisoners who broke out of the El Roble de Puntarenas prison Wednesday night.

He is Rafael Salomón Cascante Díaz, 24, who was serving a sentence of 14 years and six months for crimes including aggravated robbery, said the Fuerza Pública.

Four men managed to escape Wednesday about 8 p.m. They stabbed a guard at the main gate to do so. Two were quickly captured by prison guards and the Fuerza Pública.

Cascante was found holed up at a home in Barranca de Puntarenas.

Agents and police still are seeking Randy Quirós Quirós, 20, who is the fourth escapee. He also is a robber and was serving three years and six months, officials said.
