Chinese fugitive gives police the slip for a second time after escaping through bathroom window

WUHAN (CHINA DAILY/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A fugitive caught after being on the run for 17 years has once again escaped the police's clutches, this time through a bathroom window. Kang Jianlin fled on Tuesday as he was being escorted from Guangdong province to Henan province to face charges of rape. The 46-year-old had been eating lunch with four police officers at a restaurant in Wuhan, Hubei province, when he asked for his handcuffs to be removed and to use the toilet. After 10 minutes, an officer posted outside a second-floor bathroom looked in and discovered Kang had escaped through a window. He was seen running into a community in Donghu district. Police officers have made great efforts to find the suspect, but no clues have so far been detected, said Pan Feng, publicity director for Wuhan public security bureau.
