The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of a Pima County jail inmate who escaped last week and remains on the run.
Authorities said 43-year-old Oscar Alday slipped out a door at the jail Thursday afternoon while other inmates were being released from custody.
Alday was arrested a day earlier on charges of aggravated assault and unlawful imprisonment.
