Peach said the inmate assaulted a correctional officer before scaling a barbed-wire fence to escape Sunday night. Peach confirmed Rogowski suffered a hand injury during the escape.

Rogowski was incarcerated for a non-violent offense in March and has had no incidents while incarcerated.

Republican Councilman David Marks, who represents Towson where the jail is located, expressed concern over the incident.

“Any escape from the detention center is a serious matter and there needs to be a complete investigation as to how this occurred,” he said Saturday night.

Sun reporter Alison Knezevich contributed to this report. This story will be updated.
