A prisoner who escaped during a bathroom break at Cortlandt Town Hall has been found.
Antonio Velez, of Peekskill, was already behind bars for a home invasion in Cortlandt. During a bathroom break at court Monday, the 27-year-old escaped. Investigators found him an hour later hiding in leaves behind a building a few blocks from the courthouse.
In addition to charges pertaining to the home invasion, Velez now faces escape charges.
