NORTHWOOD (AP) — A New Hampshire police department says officers have recaptured a domestic assault suspect who slipped out of his handcuffs and ran from the Northwood police station.
Police say 18-year-old Jeffrey Reynolds was arrested on a domestic violence charge Friday night, released and then taken into custody again Saturday after allegedly assaulting the same victim.
WMUR-TV reports that after Reynolds escaped Saturday, they searched for him with police dogs and state police helicopters. Reynolds then allegedly called a friend to pick him up before jumping from the still-moving car during a chase from police. The driver is also facing charges.
Northwood Police Chief Glen Drolet says police used technology to help locate Reynolds later Saturday in a wooded area.
He's being held on $50,000 bail. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
