A man convicted of raping a child escaped from a Kansas prison Saturday — just three days after his arrival, authorities said.
The inmate, identified as Robert Terrell, 36, jumped a fence on the west side of the Winfield Correctional Facility around 8:50 p.m., according to a Facebook post by the Cowley County Emergency Communications department.
Terrell was described as being a white man with red hair, standing 5-foot-5 and weighing 154 pounds.
He was convicted of raping a child younger than 14 years old in 2002, the Wichita Eagle reported, citing records from the Kansas Department of Correction.
Winfield is about a three-hour drive south of Topeka.
