One of three escaped inmates from California jail captured

US authorities say they have captured one of three inmates who escaped from a California jail last week while facing charges involving violent crimes.

Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said 43-year-old Bac Duong was arrested on Friday in Santa Ana, the same city where the trio made their elaborate escape.

Ms Hutchens says Duong flagged down a citizen and said he wanted to turn himself in.

Duong, Jonathan Tieu and Hossein Nayeri escaped on January 22, abseiling down the five-story prison using a rope made of bed sheets.

A woman who taught English classes at the jail was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of helping the men.
