A man has escaped from an Arkansas jail for the second time in five weeks, authorities say.

The Cross County sheriff’s office wrote on social media about 4:45 p.m. Friday that Bryan Baldwin, 43, had escaped the jail during “outside yard call.” He was reportedly helped by eight other inmates.

Baldwin previously escaped while officers were booking him on a DWI charge at the jail Aug. 7, County Sheriff J. R. Smith said.

He was reportedly arrested Monday at a home in St. Francis County and taken to the Cross County jail, where he was booked at 11:51 a.m.

In the Facebook post, authorities wrote that Baldwin is not considered armed or dangerous but should not be approached.

The sheriff’s office said it is requesting that the U.S. Marshals Service help in the search and that the other eight inmates will be charged with assisting in the escape.
