CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Monfort Heights man is behind bars after he was arrested, escaped from police custody, then was caught again.

Corderro Britten, 24, is facing several charges, including attempted aggravated burglary, assault on a police officer, obstructing official business and escape.

Police say Britten attempted to burglarize his girlfriend's apartment while in possession of a handgun. When police attempted to arrest him, he assaulted an officer.

While he was en route to the Hamilton County Justice Center, he escaped police custody, but officers were able to catch up with him.

Police found a scale for weighing marijuana in his possession, so he is facing drug charges, as well.
