While at the dentist's office, Ocegueda allegedly stabbed the guard that escorted him there multiple times and fled the scene. It has been reported that Ocegueda was not wearing handcuffs, but did have shackles around his ankles and managed to run several blocks in an attempt to escape following the stabbing.

It's unclear as to how long Ocegueda was out of the custody of the guard, but it has been reported that he was found around 2 p.m. that same day near the intersection of 43rd and Eaton just a few blocks away.
