BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) Montana authorities have arrested two of three men who escaped from the Big Horn County Detention Center in Hardin last week.

Anthony Castro and Stephen Caplett were booked into jail late Monday and early Tuesday after escaping on Friday, the Billings Police Department said. The third man who escaped on Friday has not yet been found.

The inmates lured a detention officer into a cell, assaulted and bound him before stealing his key. They assaulted another officer before escaping through a garage door in the booking area, authorities said.

Castro and Caplett face charges of felony assault on a peace officer, felony escape from a detention center and obstructing a peace officer and both are being held without bond, Yellowstone County jail records show.

Inmate Andrew Parham, 25, remains at large, police Sgt. Tina Hoeger said. He is described as a white male who is 6 feet, 4 inches (1.93 meters) tall and weighing 185 pounds (84 kilograms). He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Parham's whereabouts is encouraged to contact local authorities.
