Escaped convict Jan Novák caught

On 25th of November a possibly dangerous convict Jan Novák, escaped by jumping out of window in second floor while being escorted to Prague Thomayer hospital for examination. After 19 days of hiding and fleeing from police, Jan Novák is to be returned to prison.

Early in the morning the police received a call stating that the escaped prisoner was seen near a small town, waiting for a bus heading to Prague. Police had responded quickly and the man was in hands of law enforcement by noon. Even though the convict had been sentenced to prison only for his participation in multiple robberies, luckily no one was harmed during the arrest or even his short time of escape.
