BALTIMORE (WMAR) — A prisoner who was in the custody of Baltimore Police has escaped.
Police say 33-year-old Christopher Clanton, Sr. was arrested Thursday in Northeast Baltimore for violating a protective order.
Clanton apparently has a pre-existing medical condition, so before heading to jail police took him to Good Samaritan Hospital, and that's where he escaped from early Friday.
He's described as 6 feet tall and 165 pounds, and is known to frequent the Harford Road area.
If you see him, police are asking that you call 911.
