TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Pima County inmate who walked out of jail on Nov. 22 thanks to a case of mistaken identity has been captured.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Khalid Omar Rahman, 48, was caught by detectives from the Fugitive Investigative Strike Team around 11 a.m. Monday.

“Detectives caught the recently escaped inmate at a bus stop,” a PCSD source told KOLD. “They had information he might be in a certain area and they targeted it.”

The bus stop was located in the 2600 block of North Oracle Road, according to the PCSD. Rahman was arrested for escape and was transported back to the Pima County Adult Detention Complex.

Last week, Rahman walked out of the jail after a corrections officer got him confused with another inmate.

Corrections officers were calling the names of inmates to be released after their video court appearances, and Rahman stood up and walked out. Rahman had been arrested on three misdemeanor charges.

There is no word on the status of the inmate that was actually supposed to be released.

This was the second time an inmate has escaped from the facility in just over a month.

On Oct. 20, Oscar Alday slipped out of the facility as he was being booked.

Alday, who has a long, violent criminal history, went viral when a video showed him running away from the jail in just his boxers. You can watch the video below.

Alday has not been found as of Nov. 28 and there is a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

An inmate was spotted running down the road in just his boxers after escaping from the Pima County Adult Detention Complex in Tucson, Arizona, on Thursday, Oct.
