Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio residents warned about escaped fugitive

Police are warning Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio residents to be on alert because of an escaped fugitive.

Police in Dayton, Ohio, are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Jorge Gomez.  He was arrested a few weeks ago and charged with attempted murder for trying to strangle his girlfriend.  But he escaped from jail on Friday.

So police are asking Dayton residents and people in surrounding states to be on the lookout for Gomez.

Officer Mineer of the Dayton Police Department says, "At this stage of the game, I don't even know that he's still anywhere in the area, but as anything else, he could be...we'd like to get him back in jail.  He belongs in jail."

Officers say Jorge Gomez should be considered armed and dangerous.
