Escaped Inmate Back In Custody In Rapid City

A state prison inmate who was placed on escape status earlier this month is back in custody.

Inmate Malcolm Little Brave was arrested in Rapid City June 18.

Little Brave left his community service job site in Rapid City without authorization June 2 and failed to return to the Rapid City Community Work Center.

He is in the middle of serving a sentence for aggravated assault.

Failure to return to custody following an assignment constitutes second-degree escape, a Class 5 felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
