Escaped Duo On The Run In Queensland
Authorities are continuing to search for two men who escaped from a prison farm in central Queensland over the weekend.
Jermaine Lee Anderson, 30, and Brian Illington Trent Tapim, 23, are believed to have vaulted over the low-security compound's fence late on Saturday night or early Sunday morning using a wheelie bin and a doona.
Anderson is serving six years in jail for assaulting two taxi drivers in separate incidents in Rockhampton last year, during which he held a knife to their throats.
Tapim is serving six-and-a-half years for assault, having spent much of his life since he was 14 in jails for a range of offences.
A text alert has been sent to residents in the local area.
Anyone with information about the pair is urged not to approach them but to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
