Quick-acting corrections officers prevented a pre-trial detainee from escaping from the Maui Community Correctional Center, according to the state Department of Public Safety.
According to the department, Samson Hill, 26, who is awaiting trial for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, attempted to scale a 14-foot fence but got caught in razor wire. Corrections officers pulled Hill from the fence and restrained him. Hill was subsequently transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries.
No lockdown was initiated.
Hill now faces a second-degree escape charge, according to the department.
