Big Island police have re-captured a 21-year-old woman who escaped from the Hale Nani Correctional Facility in Hilo on Saturday morning.

A tip from the public led police to the Wainaku area where they located and arrested Shaylyn Araw around 4 p.m. today.

Araw, who was incarcerated for multiple burglary and theft charges, allegedly made her escape by scaling a 15-foot razor-wire fence, police said.
