AN escaped prisoner has been arrested by armed police.
Officers went to an address in Armthorpe after receiving information an inmate had fled from Hatfield’s Moorland Prison.
The pre-planned warrant led to the arrest of the 34-year-old man, a spokesman for South Yorkshire Police confirmed.
No further details have been released.
Yesterday’s incident, which happened at around 4pm, is just a month after a 21-year-old prisoner escaped from the youth offenders’ institution site in the same area.
