Several days ago, a convicted murderer in Bavaria managed to escape by jumping out of the window. An international search for the 40-year-old has been underway since Friday - so far without success. 125 tips have already been received from the public.
Despite a major manhunt, a murderer who fled from a court in Regensburg on Thursday is still on the run. The 40-year-old could still be in the city, said the Oberpfalz police headquarters. Despite the intensive search, there is still no trace of Rachid C.
The fugitive was described, among other things, as follows: 176 cm tall, with a slender figure, weighing approx. 63 kilograms, shoulder to elbow length, wavy dark hair and a high forehead. Most recently, he wore a plaid shirt with red features, dark trousers and dark sneakers with white soles. According to the information, he speaks several languages: German with an accent, French, English, Arabic and Italian.
In the meantime, 125 tips have been received from the population, but there is still no hot lead, the police headquarters said. It called on the population to report information about their whereabouts via the emergency number 110, but not to speak to the fugitive because he is considered violent. The man had been convicted of murder and robbery resulting in death, among other things. He has been serving a life sentence since 2011.
