Two inmates who had been on the run for more than a week were caught in San Francisco.
Jonathan Tiu, 20, and Hossein Nayeri, 37, escaped from the men’s central prison in Santa Ana on January 22.
The two cut several layers of metal to free themselves from their dormitory and used a rope made of sheets to get off the roof.
Another refugee, 43-year-old Bak Duong, turned himself in to police in Santa Ana on January 29.
He reportedly told officers the two other men were traveling north. They were eventually found about 410 miles north of Santa Ana.
Police said a passer-by recognized the stolen van after they fled.
Hossein Nayeri was detained after a brief chase, and when police returned to the van, they found Jonathan Tiu inside. Ammunition was found, but no weapons.
Prior to his escape, Bak Duong was detained on charges, including attempted murder and deadly assault.
Jonathan Thieu is charged with murder and attempted murder, while Hossein Nayeri is charged with kidnapping, torture, aggravated chaos and burglary.
On January 28, authorities arrested a female English teacher who they believed had helped the prisoners escape.
