KIRO reports the inmates were doing some work in the police station when they slipped away from the officer watching them about 9:30 p.m. One was caught about two hours later and the other was caught about 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
Two teens who encountered the men say the escapees mugged them for their clothes, leaving their jail clothes.
The inmates were serving less than a year in jail for drug and theft charges, but the escape and mugging could result in prison sentences.
