#OCJAILESCAPE: All Three Inmates Have Been Arrested
Authorities arrested Duong without incident in Santa Ana on Friday. Hossein Nayeri and Jonathan Tieu were arrested Saturday in San Francisco.
Authorities announced Saturday that Hossein Nayeri and Jonathan Tieu have been arrested by the San Francisco Police Department.
Authorities said police were attending to an unrelated a medical emergency when a man a flagged down officers. The man told them he suspected that a white van parked near the market at Haight and Stanyan streets was “the one wanted in the Orange County jail escape,” said San Francisco Police Officer Grace Gatpandan. Tieu was hiding inside the van. Nayeri fled on foot and led officers on a short pursuit, but ultimately police caught the two fugitives. Police said they recovered ammunition but no weapons inside the van.
When asked if the inmates will be housed in the same jail, Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said, “Because they are escapists, they will be housed in a different manner.”
San Francisco Police confirmed that the white van had been the same one that was stolen in Los Angeles last week.
Bac Duong, one of the three inmates who escaped from the jail, turned himself to authorities Friday morning.
Authorities arrested Duong without incident around 11:30 a.m. near the Auto Electric Rebuilders shop at 4121 N. Harbor Blvd. in Santa Ana. The shop owner told KCAL 9 news that Duong walked into the office and told his wife that he wanted to turn himself in. She then called police.
Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said Duong told a civilian in Santa Ana that he wanted to turn himself in. Authorities have still not found the stolen van or the two other escaped inmates.
