PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An inmate who escaped a work crew on Wednesday afternoon was found and arrested eight hours later in the next county over, authorities said.

Jedaiah Lunn walked away from a South Fork Forest Camp work crew near Gales Creek Campground in rural Washington County at about 2:30 p.m., according to the Oregon Department of Corrections.

Officials said two people were assaulted and had their car stolen around the same time in the same area.

Lunn, a 35-year-old man serving time for second-degree robbery in Multnomah County, was arrested shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Sauvie Island.

Lunn was due to be released in October of 2023.
