24 year old Matthew Gibson of Sioux Falls is back in jail tonight after breaking out of the jail in Rock Rapids, Iowa. He scaled the fence and barbed wire in an exercise area and took off on foot.
A short time later, lawmen say, he sexually assaulted a Rock Rapids woman at her home and had her drive him in her car. She managed to jump from the car and report the rape at a convenience store. Then he bailed out of the car, letting it slam into a light pole as he took off on foot.
He was caught an hour after the escape. Gibson was in jail on sexual abuse charges at the time he escaped. Tonight, he's back where he started and facing life in prison if he's convicted.
