Shocking security video shows how murder suspect escaped interrogation room
On Friday, authorities in North Las Vegas placed murder suspect Alonso Perez in an interrogation room, shackled his legs, and handcuffed him to a metal bar on a table, reports the Washington Post.
Nonetheless, Perez escaped.
Recently released video by the North Las Vegas Police Department shows how.
Perez begins by twisting the cuffs and his body in a way that causes the end tethering him to the table to snap.
Soon after, he climbs within reach of the ceiling, moves a tile, and then exits through the sizable opening he created.
Perez was fortunate enough to exit into a completely unoccupied hallway and make his way to the door undetected.
The captain of the detective bureau said the suspect was incredibly lucky that his escape was successful, noting, "The planets aligned for that guy."
Perez was brought back into police custody on Tuesday.
