Officials told KOCO-TV that at around 5:30 a.m. Friday, Oklahoma County Detention Center inmates Jose Hernandez and Pablo Robledo broke a cell window and shimmied down the building using linens tied together.
During the escape attempt, Hernandez fell or jumped from the makeshift rope at about the fourth floor and was found and arrested.
Robledo escaped, and authorities launched an hours-long manhunt. He was taken back into custody Friday afternoon, according to Oklahoma City Police.

KOCO-TV reported that records show Robledo was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail in June 2019 on several charges, including first-degree murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and misdemeanor domestic abuse.
Court records show he had pleaded not guilty and was set for trial beginning Aug. 31.
