SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - The hunt for an unknown inmate that started early Thursday morning has ended.

The man who would only identify himself as "John Doe" returned to the Summerville Police department Thursday afternoon to turn himself in.

Summerville police identified him as 26-year-old Tyrell Ron Chisolm.

Major John Garrison of the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office said Summerville police had taken the suspect to the jail around 3 a.m., but he somehow managed to get away from police in the sally port of the jail.


"It does happen from time to time. When we got over the jail the gentleman escaped out of the back of the patrol car and ran," said Summerville Police Captain John Rogers.

Garrison said the suspect was still wearing handcuffs as he ran away toward Deming Way.

According to the police report, an officer tried to stop the man after he was seen erratically riding a bicycle in the area of a string of breaking and entering complaints.

After several attempts, the officer was able to stop the subject. He refused to give the officer any of his personal information, only saying, "I'm John Doe."

He was transported to the Dorchester County jail when attempts to identify him failed.

"Circumstances happen. It's unfortunate. Hindsight's always 20/20 on everything we do. It's something that happened, and all we can do is learn from it," said Captain Rogers.
