PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) Authorities in Philadelphia are searching for a homicide suspect who escaped from a police van on the way to a prison, injuring an officer.
Police say 22-year-old Omar Roane was one of three prisoners who forced their way out of the back door of the van Saturday afternoon while the vehicle was stopped at an intersection in the northeastern part of the city.
Roane is charged with the June 9 murder of 17-year-old Kyree Young in a drug robbery. The van was on its way to the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility.
The other two prisoners were apprehended within 20 feet of the vehicle. An officer injured his ankle.
