Police are hunting a handcuffed prisoner who allegedly broke free of officers south-west of Brisbane last night.

A police spokesperson said extensive searches had been carried out overnight around Ipswich as officers sought to “urgently” find the man but he was still on the run on Friday morning.

Police alleged the man was being taken from Roderick Street facility after being arrested earlier on Thursday on property offences when he escaped about 9pm.

The spokesperson was unable to give any more details about the facility or how many police were guarding him at the time.

The man isn’t considered dangerous but but members of the public are urged to contact police if they see him, rather than approaching him themselves.

He was described as 180cm tall with an athletic build, black short curly hair with a rat’s tail and brown eyes with thick bushy, black eyebrows.

He was barefoot and handcuffed at the front, wearing a light blue shirt and blue-and-white light-coloured shorts.

Police believed the man might still be in Ipswich but said he also had connections with Churchill, about 3km south.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
