Moments ago, Orange County deputies took Nicholas King into custody after he escaped from the patrol vehicle that was taking him to the detention center.

Authorities received a call about his location after the caller recognized him behind a business near U.S. 70 and N.C. 86. King is on his way to the magistrate's office for processing.

King had been apprehended in connection with a domestic assault from earlier Monday on Elizabeth Brady Road in Hillsborough. Among King’s charges are assault on a female and second-degree kidnapping. While en route to the detention center, King escaped from a patrol vehicle. When last seen, he was wearing handcuffs fastened behind his back.
