The Press, and TV3 ran a story tonight about a defendant who escaped from the dock, ran over the road and into an office block (which happened to be a lawyers office) where he was found hiding in a toilet cubicle.
The TV3 reporter at the end of the article recounted a similar incident last week where a fire alarm was set off to assist a prisoner to escape. The prisoner was on crutches and was quickly caught by swiftly walking policemen.
As stated elsewhere in this blog, Christchurch has a surfeit of crazy people – this is further evidence. Two men without a clue on how to escape custody.
