Law officers are looking for an Oklahoma County jail inmate who escaped through a jail window.

Bed sheets could be seen hanging outside a 12th story window of the jail Friday morning.

The inmate on the loose has been identified as 34-year-old Pablo Robledo.

The escape happened shortly after 5 a.m. Friday, jail officials said.

Another inmate, Jose Hernandez, escaped with Robledo but Hernandez was caught a short time later by Oklahoma City police.

Hernandez told officers he was injured when he fell from the fourth floor while trying to climb down from the jail.

Jail officials said the 12th floor is reserved for the most dangerous suspects and the two were in a disciplinary unit.

Robledo was booked into the jail on June 21, 2019 by the Oklahoma City police.

His charges include murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, domestic abuse and possession of contraband.

He is accused of ordering the shooting death of Arnuflo McClellan, 30, in southwest Oklahoma City. McClellan was found dead in March 2019 near SW 8th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

Robledo is described as a Hispanic male. He is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Robledo's whereabouts is asked to call 911.
