Escapee goes up to get out of court building

A man escaped from a cellblock interview room on the third floor of the Circuit Court building Wednesday, apparently by going through the ceiling and air ducts.

Toni Schwartz, spokes­woman for the state Department of Public Safety, said the escape happened at about noon.

The court building on Punchbowl Street was evacuated at about 4 p.m. as sheriff's deputies conducted a sweep of the courthouse for two escapees. Public safety officials thought two men escaped but found only one of them had gotten away.

Officials found broken ceiling tiles and a slipper in the interview room.

Schwartz identified the escapee as Darius Puni­mau, who was at the courthouse for a probation revocation hearing.
