Canadian women who fled police arrested

Canadian police captured two escaped prisoners, ironically enough, at an escape room in Edmonton on Tuesday, October 3.

This surveillance footage shows the arrest from three angles. The owners of SideQuests Adventures Inc. said the pair, both female, said they were from out of town and would like a tour of the game centre. Police officers later arrived and arrested the women, who fled from the Edmonton Institution for Women the previous night.

Escape room co-owner Jonathan Liaw described the arrest as swift and peaceful, and his wife Rebecca told Global News that, “It sort of was funny to think that they weren’t going to escape from an escape room. Definitely not as challenging here as, I assume, escaping from jail would be.”
