PAULS VALLEY, Oklahoma -

A Garvin County jail inmate escaped Sunday night from the courthouse in Pauls Valley, the Garvin County sheriff's office reported Monday morning.

Jason Glen Willis, 32, is a white man last seen wearing orange-and-white striped pants, a white T-shirt and no shoes. He is about 5-feet, 11-inches tall, about 150 pounds, is of stocky build, has tattoos on his chest and back of both arms, has hazel eyes and short brown hair with a short growth beard.

About 9:30 a.m., Willis was being escorted by a detention deputy in the courthouse when Willis physically assaulted the deputy. Willis ran out through the emergency exit. The deputy suffered minor injuries, the sheriff's office said.

Willis was last seen running east from the jail. 

Willis is from the Davis area and was awaiting trial for gun charge. Willis is a convicted felon. 

Willis was not armed at the time of the escape but should be considered armed and dangerous. He has a history of running away from law enforcement during his previous arrests.

Anyone with information is asked to call Garvin County Crimestoppers at 855-211-7867 or 911.
