A Moroccan inmate in Switzerland made use of a medical appointment to escape prison.
Rabat – A 23-year-old Moroccan prisoner escaped on Thursday during a doctor’s visit in Frauenfeld, Switzerland, reported the Swiss daily Blick.
Local police confirmed that the prisoner, who is currently in the open, is not a danger for the population because he was not imprisoned for a “violent crime.”
The police are still trying to track down the prisoner, who escaped with handcuffs on, with the use of scent hounds.
A similar incident occurred on Wednesday, when a 22-year-old Algerian escaped while at a doctor’s appointment in the Swiss Gommiswald municipality.
On the same day, the police found and arrested the Algerian detainee who had been in custody for over a month on a charge of burglary.
