Deputies search for suspect who escaped from Jackson County Jail

NEAR MEDFORD, Ore. - A robbery suspect has escaped from jail and the Jackson County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to be on the lookout for the man, who they said is a threat to the community.

In a press release, the sheriff's office said Bradley William Monical, 42, escaped Monday from a recreation yard at the Jackson County Jail. He was in custody to face charges related to a robbery in 2011.

Monical is described as 5 foot 7 inches tall, 170 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. A booking photo shows that he is mostly bald.

Deputies said anyone spotting Monical should call 9-1-1 immediately.
