Herndon police search for robbery suspect who escaped custody

Local police are searching for a man who escaped after being handcuffed by police on Sunday.

The man — who is suspected of robbing a business on the 700 block of Grant Street — was able to escape police custody before he was transferred to the backseat of a police cruiser.

Police believe he left the area in a gold Honda Pilot that was reported stolen from Nicklaus Court on Nov. 11.  The man reportedly left the scene as a passenger in the stolen car.

So far, police have not been able to locate the man. That is despite a helicopter-assisted search.

The stolen car has Virginia tags that read UBB-2337.
