D.C. man charged with flight, assault on officers
A D.C. man charged with fleeing custody while facing sentencing for a federal drug offense was indicted and charged Thursday with escape and assault on correctional and police officers.
A Maryland woman, meanwhile, was charged with harboring him during his escape. The man was captured later that same day.
Terrence O. Moore Jr., 28, allegedly escaped from custody and was recaptured on March 11, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the District. He allegedly assaulted a correctional officer while making his escape.
Moore also was charged with assaulting four D.C. police officers who found him in a parked car 11 hours later.
Georgia Renee Davis, 27, of Clinton, was charged with harboring Moore after his escape.
Moore was caught by police in June 2009 when police approached him for questioning in the 3800 block of First Street SE about 7:30 p.m.
Moore allegedly broke into a residence, barricaded himself inside for several hours and exchanged gunfire with officers. He eventually surrendered, police said.
