Gary Police are seeking the public's help in locating a prisoner who escaped from custody this afternoon. Gary Police Corp. Gabrielle King says just before 1:30pm, officers were loading prisoners into a transport van when 21 year old Jamal Haskins kicked an officer, pushed another down and then fled in an unknown direction.
Corp. King says Haskins had just been sentenced to one-year in prison in the Lake County Jail, for not attending Edge Water Systems for Balanced Living as ordered, before injuring the two officers and fleeing. Haskins is described as 5'6”, weighing 220 pounds, wearing all black, with a short haircut. The injuries the officers sustained were non life-threatening. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jamal Haskins is asked to contact the Gary Police Department.
