Last week, police in Roswell apprehended a California man on charges of kidnapping, robbery and carjacking. Taken to the police station to face further questioning, the suspect — wearing a blue jumpsuit from the Chaves County detention center — managed to break free from officers and run away.
About two hours after the escape, police issued an alert saying the suspect had been spotted on a security camera no longer wearing the blue prison jumpsuit, but a red skirt and a colorful scarf on his head. In addition, he was carrying a pink purse.
A photo of the suspect in the Albuquerque Journal shows him sporting a mop haircut and a distinctive red beard.
At the time of this posting, the suspect is still at large, apparently still making a fashion statement in Roswell.
