The Associated Press reports that one of two men who escaped from a Kentucky jail has been arrested. David Mosely, 41, is one of the convicted felons who escaped from a Bell County jail by spraying bleach into the eyes of a jail worker and attacking another before running.

A K-9 unit found Mosely under some blankets and pillows in the basement of a residence just a few blocks from the jail he escaped from on Tuesday.

Police are still searching for the other escapee, Matthew Price, 43. He is described as 5’9” tall and 170 pounds, white male with blondish-brown hair. He is from Middlesboro and has multiple tattoos on his chest. Price was serving time for multiple counts of burglary, wanton endangerment on a police officer and drunk driving.

Bell County is on the southeastern tip of Kentucky, where the border meets with Tennessee and Virginia. There is plenty of rugged terrain and thick forests in the area where Price could be hiding, including Pine Mountain and Cumberland Mountain.

The injured jail workers were treated at a local hospital and released.
