Dallas PD captures prisoner who escaped Oak Cliff hospital

Dallas PD captured a prisoner Thursday evening who escaped custody at an Oak Cliff-area hospital on Thursday afternoon.

The search happened in the Kessler Park area, which is close to Methodist Hospital in Oak Cliff.

Police said the escaped suspect was Richard Williams, 19. Williams was one of two men involved in an armed robbery earlier Thursday. Police said Williams and another man approached a man loading aluminum cans into his pickup. They pistol-whipped the man and stole his pickup.

Officers later saw the pickup and the two suspects fled when police tried to stop them. Williams was captured by police, but escaped from his room inside Methodist Hospital in Oak Cliff on Thursday afternoon.

Williams was captured by DPD officers shortly before 6 p.m. on Thursday.
