'Violent' ICE Detainee Escapes from Custody at JFK Airport

ICE detainee escapes from custody at JFK airport

A "violent" Senegalese man who was supposed to be deported on Tuesday escaped federal agents at New York City's JFK Airport, then fled the terminal in a taxi.

Mbacke fled and hailed a cab at about 9 p.m. Tuesday, said Khaalid Walls, a spokesman with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE agents removed his handcuffs during security screening at JFK following a layover from Detroit. The agents apparently waited close to an hour before notifying other authorities.

Officials say they caught the man on surveillance video climbing into a taxi. He is described as a black male, 6-feet-3 and about 190 pounds.

The man was being transferred from one flight to another at the Queens airport's Terminal 4 when he managed to elude officers around 8:30 p.m., officials said. Federal authorities would know if he is still at large.

The agency says Mbacke entered the country lawfully in 2005 but violated the terms of his status. He was ordered deported in September 2015 by an immigration judge.

He has previous criminal convictions for multiple weapons and firearms offenses. "Members of the public should not to attempt to apprehend him and instead immediately contact authorities".
