RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada inmate who walked away from a minimum-security facility outside Carson City was arrested following a confrontation with a security guard at a Reno mobile home park.

 

Authorities say 51-year-old James Park escaped from Stewart Conservation Camp on Aug. 18 and was taken into custody Wednesday.

The security guard was stabbed in the neck but able to take Parks into custody.

 

Park was sentenced by a Washoe District Court judge in June to a sentence of 12-36 months on convictions for attempted burglary and uttering a forged instrument.
