TOWSON, MD (WBFF) – Baltimore County Police are actively searching for Kyle Rogowski, 25, a prisoner who escaped from the Baltimore County Detention Center (BCDC) in Towson earlier this evening.

He was last seen headed southbound on York Road on foot wearing a green jumpsuit with a white head covering. He may be wearing only one shoe and is likely to have suffered a visible injury to his hand incurred while scaling the barbed fencing.
