The escapee, identified as Raylad Hauole Brown, 25, had fled the Hale Nani Correctional Facility the day before.

South Hilo patrol officers responded to a 3:38 p.m. call from residents in the area that a man matching Brown’s description had been seen running through neighborhood yards.

Brown was being held in the Hilo police cellblock Friday evening pending further investigation.

Hale Nani authorities said Brown had escaped from the facility about 2 p.m. Thursday
