On Saturday, a little after 10 p.m., three inmates—Willie E. Ethridge, 34; Michael Elliot, 24; and Walshea Mitchell, 35—escaped from Dorm B of a detention center in Natchitoches Parish, La., and then jumped over two rolls of razor-wire fence, according to USA Today.

The inmates were unarmed at the time of their escape, but the parish’s sheriff’s office announced in a news release, “They should be considered dangerous, and extreme caution should be used if seen.”

According to USA Today, Ethridge was imprisoned on one count of attempted second-degree murder and two counts of armed robbery, Elliot for illegal possession of stolen items and theft of a motor vehicle, and Mitchell for armed robbery with a weapon and attempted armed robbery.
