State prison officials Wednesday circulated a photo of an inmate who escaped Tuesday from a Los Angeles re-entry facility where he was finishing out his sentence.

Hugo Andalon, 21, who was scheduled to be paroled later this month, had been participating in the Male Community Reentry Program in Los Angeles County since July 21.

Andalon scaled a fence to make his getaway, according to Krissi Khokhobashvili of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Andalon was serving a two-year sentence handed down in Los Angeles County for inflicting corporal injury to a spouse/co-habitant and evading a police officer while driving recklessly, Khokhobashvili said.

The Male Community Reentry Program is a voluntary program for state prison inmates who have approximately 120 days left to serve. The program allows eligible prisoners to serve the end of their terms in a re-entry center to transition from custody into the community, she said.

Anyone with information or knowledge of Andalon’s whereabouts should call 911, Khokhobashvili said.
