Rape suspect flees from Pittsburg County courthouse

A McAlester man accused of molesting two 13 year old girls is on the run after making a break for it in court.

Authorities say 26 year old Jonathan Barnett took off from the Pittsburg County courthouse Friday morning just before the charges were read against him.

Barnett was in court to face a firearms charge, but prosecutors decided to also formally charge him with two counts of first degree rape, that's when Barnett escaped.
