Senovio Mendoza, Junior, 32, and another inmate were doing grounds keeping at the Roosevelt County Fairgrounds under the supervision of a county employee. While working, Mendoza hit the county employee with a pickaxe.
Police say he then tied the employee’s hands and feet together, stole keys to a vehicle and fled.
Mendoza then traveled on State Road 202 leading officers on a chase to Muleshoe and eventually Sudan. Eventually they caught him, and as of Thursday he remained jailed in Texas.
