OKMULGEE, Okla. – Officials say a man who they consider to be dangerous has been captured after he escaped from jail.

Around 7 a.m. Friday, Okmulgee County officials said Cayman Coleman was unaccounted for.

According to court documents, surveillance video showed Coleman escaping from the east side of the jail around 5:30 a.m. in just his boxers.

Coleman was being held on rape charges.
