The three escaped the detention center Saturday July 24, after attacking an on duty detention officer. Officials say all three were being held in the McDonald County Detention Center for violent offenses, and at the time of the search were considered armed and dangerous.

The sheriff’s office says the female Detention Officer who was attacked sustained minor injuries during the escape and is recuperating at this time.
