The Yuma Police Department tells News 11 it is looking for a Hispanic male prisoner who escaped Tuesday afternoon. Officers say they were dispatched to the area of 350 West 16th Street at about 12:10 p.m.
Officers say the man was last seen fleeing in a stolen vehicle. They also say the man was in shackles.
He was last seen leaving the area of 16th Street and Fifth Avenue in a white 2002 Mazda van, with AZ license 710-HNE, and a front vanity plate of an American flag.
UPDATE: According to the Yuma County Sheriff's Office, Municipal Court officers were transporting 10 inmates Tuesday morning from jail to municipal court. It is unclear how he escaped but only nine inmates returned to the jail.
Sheriff's Deputies say a witness called Quechan Police to report a man in prison jumpsuit with shackles on and that is when munipical court officers confirmed one inmate missing. Sources also say the witness saw Dominguez unsuccessfully try to hijack a car then run away on foot.
Sometime after that he fled in the white van. Police say he's changed his clothing and is now wearing a white t-shirt and tan pants.
YPD also confirmed he is heading away from the area toward the border.
Dominguez was booked into the Yuma County Jail Monday night at 6 on aggravated assault, trespassing, and burglary and theft charges.
