The police in Bavaria are looking for an escaped murderer. The convicted criminal fled on Thursday afternoon under previously unknown circumstances from a window at the Regensburg district court, as announced by the Oberpfalz police headquarters in Regensburg. The 39-year-old is considered violent.
The man was convicted of murder and robbery resulting in death, among other things. He has been serving a life sentence since 2011. He was to be brought before the Regensburg district court on Thursday for a criminal offense in a correctional facility. There he fled from a window of the lawyer’s room on the ground floor.
According to the information, the exact circumstances of the escape were still being examined. The police searched with a large contingent for the man. Even a helicopter was on duty. The security authorities asked the population to report information about the whereabouts of the fugitive via the police emergency number 110. Under no circumstances should the man be spoken to, he “could react violently,” warned the police.
