An inmate who escaped from the downtown Bakersfield jail is back in custody.

In addition to his original charges, Rosales faces additional charges including escape, assaulting a peace officer, and carjacking.

The sheriff’s office says the vehicle taken during the carjacking was found near South H Street and Belle Terrace.

Rosales was originally in custody on suspicion of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of methamphetamine for sale and possession of a controlled substance while armed.
