NAZARETH, Pa. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a Pennsylvania man who escaped police custody after his court hearing on a robbery charge.

Police say 24-year-old Daniel Preziosi somehow slipped out of his handcuffs and leg shackles and fled after attending a preliminary hearing in Nazareth on Monday.

He allegedly jumped into a Toyota Camry.

Police found the car outside a strip club. They say Preziosi’s girlfriend lives in apartment above the bar but they have not been able to locate her.
