HILO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 26-year-old Hawaii Island man has been charged with escape after attempting to flee the Hawaii Community Correctional Facility on Wednesday.

Authorities say Howard Hinds, also known as Kaulana Hinds and Manoa Kamau, tried running from the facility just before 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

South Hilo Patrol Officers responded to reports of an escaped inmate and located the man behind a home on Omao Street just more than thirty minutes later. The resident is approximately three-quarters of a mile from the correctional center.

Hinds is being held on $10,000 bail and was charged with one count of second-degree escape.
