After three inmates escaped Jan. 22 from the Orange County Central Men’s Jail, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that fugitive Bac Duong was arrested today on the 1400 block of North Harbor Boulevard after turning himself in to a civilian. Duong had been in custody since 2014, and was accused of multiple felonies including attempted murder, assault with a firearm and burglary, according to NBC Los Angeles.

Duong’s arrest comes after authorities arrested jail English teacher Nooshafarin Ravaghi yesterday on suspicion of assisting inmates Duong, Jonathan Tieu and Hossein Nayeri in their escape from the maximum-security area of the jail, ABC reports. 

 

While Duong is in custody, the raining inmates are still in the loose and the van they stole–a 2008 White GMC Savana–is still missing, according to OC Register.
