Escaped prisoner caught in Rotterdam
The police arrested a prisoner that escaped while being transported to a prison in Grave on Monday. The 39-year-old man was caught in a cafe in Rotterdam on Thursday night, the Public Prosecutor said on Friday.
The Belgian man, who has lived in the Netherlands for 30 years, was taken to a detention center. He is known for property crime and is suspected of fraud in the Netherlands. He's been in custody since August.
Belgium requested that the man be extradited to them, because he still has to serve an outstanding prison sentence there.
The man escaped while being transported to a prison in Grave on Monday. He got out of the police car and ran for it. How he managed that, was not revealed.
