Inmate arrested after fleeing Racine County prison

TOWN OF DOVER — Racine County sheriff's deputies say they've arrested a woman who escaped from a minimum-security prison, as well as the person who helped her flee.

Authorities say the woman left the Robert E. Ellsworth Correction Center near Union Grove about 8 p.m. Wednesday and fled in a vehicle driven by another person.

Deputies stopped the vehicle in the Town of Yorkville and the inmate was arrested after a brief foot chase. The driver fled the scene, but was later stopped by deputies and arrested.

Both suspects are in the Racine County Jail.
