The manhunt for an inmate who escaped from the Chester County Detention Center last Friday is over. Deputies said Bradley Bianco, 29, was captured around 5 p.m.

Monday after being spotted running from an abandoned house on Rambo Road in York County. Authorities have not said how Bianco was able to slip away, but this wasn’t the first time he has escaped from custody.

In 2012, authorities said he overpowered a guard at the Chester Regional Medical Center while wearing a straight jacket and leg shackles. According to officials, Bianco then took the guard’s gun and fired shots while running out of the hospital.

He was later found hiding behind a house nearby and charged with attempted murder.
