'Violent' ICE Detainee Escapes from Custody at JFK Airport

A man escaped custody from federal immigration officials Tuesday night at at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainee with previous charges of weapons-related offenses managed to escape custody on Tuesday at John F. Kennedy International airport, officials have said.

The man allegedly escaped from the agents at Gate B23, in Terminal 4, around 8:30pm on Tuesday. The agents had removed his handcuffs and were about to take him onto a plane when he took off running. The agents apparently waited close to an hour before notifying other authorities.

A law enforcement source told the newspaper that video captured the man jumping into a taxi and leaving the airport. Mbacke was caught on surveillance video fleeing the airport in a yellow cab during that time.

Port Authority officials say a review of one of the airport's cameras shows the detainee getting into the cab. Federal authorities would know if he is still at large.

Port Authority police could not immediately provide a description of the suspect.

Mbacke enterted the country lawfully in 2005 before violating the terms of his status. He is described as a black male, 6-feet-3 and about 190 pounds. ICE along with state, federal and local authorities are now actively seeking his whereabouts.
