An Oahu Community Correctional Center inmate was re-captured after a fleeting bid for freedom Friday.

Williamson Surin, 34, ran from the facility’s Annex 1 dorm around 2 p.m. but was caught nearby off Kamehameha Highway fronting the Marukai Market parking lot. The state Department of Public Safety said that OCCC staff kept Surin in view throughout the escape attempt.

Surin is serving time for convictions on unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and third-degree assault. He now faces an additional escape charge.
