An attempted escape at Oahu Community Correctional Center was thwarted Thursday afternoon.
At around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, three inmates being held in a cell tried to weaken the bars by some unknown means, but quick action by the staff prevented their escape from the cell.
The attempted escape will be added to their record, as well as destruction of government property.
The three of them were pretrial inmates. It isn’t known what crimes they committed that caused their imprisonment.
