A prisoner the Eisenstadt prison fled on Monday during an execution. The man was out with prison guards in Eisenstadt at lunchtime when he broke loose and ran away. The officer then alerted the institution and followed the fugitive with colleagues to the town hall’s underground car park.
Shortly thereafter, the prison and three other squads moved out to catch the man. In addition, assistance from the police was requested. Assuming that the fugitive could be armed in the meantime, the officers entered the underground car park with guns drawn.
Just a few minutes later, the police station found the fugitive. The man sat in a dark corner and begged the officers in broken German not to shoot. Just 20 minutes after he escaped, the prison guard was able to arrest the inmate again.
“The justice guard acted very professionally. This is also due to the training measures in the institution, ”said team leader Mario Schindler, praising his team. The director of the institution, Harald Lipphart-Kirchmeir, added: “I am grateful to be able to lead such a highly professional team”
