169 Handcuffed Suspect in Custody Jumps Out Window, Escapes Rock County Sheriff’s Office
A handcuffed suspect who jumped out a window at the Rock County Sheriff’s Office last October caused a school lockdown before being taken into custody hours later.

The handcuffs were gone when Quantrell Dylan Schwartzlow, 17, of 408 W. Beloit St., Orfordville, was taken into custody at his friend’s house on Yuba Street in Janesville, police said.

Police are not sure how he got out of the handcuffs.

Rock County sheriff’s detectives arrested Schwartzlow earlier Thursday on suspicion of second-degree sexual assault, strangulation, suffocation and battery, Sheriff Robert Spoden said.

A detective left Schwartzlow alone in an unsecured interrogation room to retrieve items for the interrogation, Spoden said.

After the detective left, Schwartzlow jumped out a second-story window and fled on foot while handcuffed in front of his body at 12:18 p.m., Spoden said.

Police two hours later found Schwartzlow at a friend’s house at the 700 block of Yuba Street in Janesville and took him into custody without incident at about 3:45 p.m., Spoden said.
