FOLSOM, CA - Police arrested a man, who escaped from the California State Prison in Folsom Sunday, in Folsom Monday evening.
Marco A. Cabrera was arrested near Green Valley Road and Shadowfax Lane around 6:30 p.m. by Folsom police.
According to Jason Browning of the Folsom Police Dept., Cabrera managed to escape prison confines on Sunday. Later that day, area residents thwarted an attempted car theft on the 100 block of Esplinade Circle by an individual matching Cabrera's description.
"I blocked him in there and he came over to me with the keys," said area resident Grace Mclaughlin after she says she drove behind Cabrera and forced him off the road.
"He got out and walked up to me and was like, oh, I just wanted to get to Sacramento. He gave me the keys to the car and I was like, are you serious?" Mclaughlin said Cabrera then grabbed her phone off her lap and ran.
Cabrera was able to evade capture and fled into the surrounding area.
