One of three jailbirds arrested in Agrinio

Police in Agrinio, western Greece, on Tuesday managed to arrest one of three men who escaped from the local police station’s holding cell earlier in the day, as the hunt for the other two escapees continued.

A 30-year-old Greek facing misdemeanor charges was located by police officers combing the city and the countryside for the three jailbirds.

Still at large were a 29-year-old Albanian national charged with homicide and another Greek, aged 22, who also faces misdemeanor charges.

The three men managed to escape by cutting through the metal bars on the window of their holding cell.
