Kansas City police arrested an inmate late Saturday who momentarily escaped from the Heartland Center for Behavioral Change near downtown by pulling a fire alarm.
Emergency crews responded to the detention facility at 1514 Campbell Ave., just before midnight on a fire alarm. Arriving officers were told that an inmate left through the fire escape doors on the west side of the building.
Officers found the inmate near Truman Road and Troost Avenue after they canvassed the area.
The suspect was immediately taken back to the detention facility and was cited for escaping, police said.
No injuries were reported.
