LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A Laurel man who escaped police custody Tuesday while waiting for a court appearance on attempted aggravated assault charges is back in jail, along with another suspect in the case who was caught hiding with him in the attic of a Laurel home. 

Police say 19-year-old Alfonzo Moffett was discovered hiding in a home on North 15th Avenue, about 7 hours after escaping from municipal court. Moffett was making his first appearance on charges of attempted aggravated assault.

Found hiding with Moffett was 18-year-old Justin A. Hailes, also of Laurel, who is wanted by police on the same charges, stemming from an incident on October 19th, where several gunshots were fired into an occupied car.
