FORT DODGE (AP) — A Webster County inmate is back in custody after escaping with another while doing laundry at the jail in Fort Dodge.

Jason Sullivan, 43, was arrested in Fort Dodge Saturday evening. Sullivan and 32-year-old George Johnson escaped Thursday night. Johnson was injured during the escape and taken back into custody at a hospital.

Documents say a 37-year-old Fort Dodge woman, Sarah Ritter, 37, is charged with felony aiding and abetting the escape and several aggravated misdemeanors for helping Johnson. Ritter is alleged to have been an accessory after the fact.
