Minutes before he snaps the hinges off his handcuffs, the murder suspect looks around the North Las Vegas police interrogation room, his eyes focused on the ceiling through which he would later escape.
He stands up, leans over the table he is attached to and begins to twist the handcuffs with enough torque that they break, his right hand freed from the metal bar affixed to the table, according to video showed by city police Chief Alexander Perez on Wednesday. His shackled feet are seen dangling from the ceiling.
Alonso Perez, 25, was rearrested at an east valley apartment complex without incident about 8 p.m. Tuesday, three days after the escape, police said.
He’s accused in the Aug. 27 fatal shooting of 31-year-old Mohammed Robinson, who was gunned down during an argument at the McDonald’s parking lot in the 3000 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North, police said.
Alonso Perez was booked on counts for three cases that include, murder, escape by a felony prisoner, auto theft, firing into an occupied building, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery and battery, the Las Vegas Sun reports.
