A man convicted for the rape of a child escaped from the prison in Kansas on Saturday — just three days after his arrival, authorities said.

The inmate, who, as Robert Terrell, 36, jumped over a fence on the west side of the Winfield Correctional Facility around 8:50 a.m., according to a Facebook post by the Cowley County Emergency Communications department.

Terrell is described as a white man with red hair, standing 5-foot-5 and a weight of 154 pounds.

He was convicted for the rape of a child younger than 14 years old, in 2002, the Wichita Eagle reported, citing records from the Kansas Department of Correction.

Winfield is about a three hour drive south of Topeka.
