PATERSON, New Jersey (WABC) -- Police say a prisoner who escaped from the Passaic County Jail is back in custody.
At around 4 a.m. Monday, officers were transporting Isaiah Felix, 20, to the jail. Upon entering the Sally Port, Felix escaped from custody.
Clinton officers then chased Felix through the streets of Paterson, but he managed to get away.
Felix was arrested the day prior for allegedly kidnapping a member of his family and burglary.
Late Monday night, Felix turned himself into the Passaic Police Department. He was then conveyed to Clifton Police headquarters and ultimately back to the Passaic County Jail where he is currently being held on his original charges, as well as a new escape charge.
