Bozeman police are searching for a 28-year-old man who escaped from custody on Saturday morning.

Kevin A. Briggs was in custody at the Law and Justice Center in Bozeman while officers investigated a reported case of sexual intercourse without consent and assault with a weapon involving a knife.

Shortly after 8 a.m., Briggs escaped on foot, according to a news release from the police department. 

Briggs is about 5 feet, 5 inches tall, medium build, wearing a black or gray hooded coat with semi-white stripes, green pants and black shoes. He was also wearing a belly belt with handcuffs and leg shackles.

Briggs should be considered dangerous and potentially armed. Anyone who spots Briggs should not approach him, but should call the local police department at 911.
