The two remaining escapees from Orange County jail have finally been arrested thanks to a tip from a civilian that saw a van outside a lot near a Whole Foods Market in Haight and Stanyan streets in San Francisco Saturday that matched the description of the ones allegedly stolen by the fugitives, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Upon responding to the area, one of the suspects, Hoseein Nayer, 37, tried to run from the police but was still apprehended.
The other suspect, Jonathan Tieu, 20, was found hiding inside the van and did not resist arrest when officers got to him.
"This is an excellent example of how the public can help SFPD keep this city safe," San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said, according to ABC News.
Three inmates made a well-planned escape from the Orange County jail on Jan. 22, and police has been on a manhunt for them ever since, as HNGN previously reported.
One of the escapees, Bac Duong, 43, surrendered to police on Friday in Santa Ana, Calif., according to The Wall Street Journal.
Nooshafarin Ravaghi, 44, an English teacher at the Central Men's Jail, has also been arrested on the grounds that she allegedly gave Google Maps information that helped the men plan their escape, as previously reported by HNGN.
