Share this post

Authorities say a Gary man who escaped while being transported to the Lake County Jail Friday turned himself in at the Gary Public Safety Facility shortly before noon Saturday. About 24-hours earlier, police say 21-year-old Jamal Haskins attacked two police officers at the transport van outside Gary City Court and fled. Officials say Haskins had just been sentenced to one year in jail for failing to comply with a program that allows mentally ill defendants to avoid prosecution if they get treatment. Both the injured officers with Gary Police were taken to a local hospital, with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
