JACKSON, Miss. — Police are looking for two men in connection with a robbery and car theft in Mississippi.

The Clarion Ledger reported Sunday that 37-year-old Fredrick Harper and 48-year-old Bernard Caston are wanted in the robbery of a man whose car was also stolen.

Jackson police Sgt. Roderick Holmes says the vehicle was later stopped where Harper ran away.

Caston had been apprehended but managed to escape police custody. He was still handcuffed at the time of his escape.

Holmes says the pair will be charged in relation to the robbery and car theft when they are found.
