Mexican authorities have launched a manhunt for a suspect who escaped from three police officers – all of whom are now under custody as part of the investigation.
The startling incident took place Monday in the southeastern city of Orizaba when the trio of cops assigned to the Veracruz state attorney general’s office escorted the handcuffed detainee to a medical exam at the coroner’s office.
A surveillance camera near the facility showed the plainclothes cops walking the man back to their department pickup truck.
The suspect stopped for a moment but one of the police officers tapped him in the back to get him to continue walking.

When they reach the vehicle, the man turned around and was instructed to face the pickup truck’s right rear door.
The suspect then noticed a cargo truck was approaching them. The sly perp saw the truck stop and when one of the cops opened the door to allow him to enter the pickup truck, he took off running down the street.
The cops chased after him but were unable to locate him after an extensive neighborhood search.

The fugitive was last seen wearing beige pants and a white t-shirt.
A spokesperson for the Veracruz state attorney general’s office declined to tell DailyMail.com the charges the suspect was facing.
His escape came after a suspect who was facing murder charges attempted to flee from a court in the western state of Jalisco on November 17
The man, who was handcuffed, threatened the court officers with a pair of scissors and then broke a window with a chair. He was able to climb out and ran off before he was recaptured.
