Oklahoma inmate escapes from jail using bed sheets

A murder suspect is on the run after making a daring escape from an Oklahoma jail by breaking his cell window, tying bed sheets together and climbing down from the 12th floor. 

Pablo Robledo, 34, and his cellmate Jose Hernandez escaped from the Oklahoma County jail in Oklahoma City early Friday morning. 

Robledo was being held on a first-degree murder charge.

The pair managed to escape by breaking their cell window, tying multiple bed sheets together and then climbing down the outside of the building.

Images from the scene show at least seven bed sheets tied together hanging from the broken cell window. 

Robledo managed to escape and is still on the run. 

His cellmate, however, fell or jumped from the makeshift rope at about the fourth floor.

Hernandez broke his leg during the fall and was later found by Oklahoma City police. 

He was taken to hospital for treatment.  

Officers at the jail weren’t aware the inmates were missing until about 7am when they received a call from police saying they had found and arrested Hernandez outside the facility. 

When officials went to investigate the cell, they realized that Robledo was also missing. 

Robledo was captured on jail security video about 5.25am outside the jail.

Police are still searching for him. 

Jail records show Robledo had been jailed since June 2019 on murder, assault and battery, domestic abuse and other charges.

Court records show he had pleaded not guilty and was set for trial beginning August 31.
