Washington Times
December 29, 1922


BALTIMORE, Dec. 29.—John E. Mann, thirty-five years old, alleged highwayman and automobile thief, who escaped July 15 from headquarters detectives by jumping through the window of a train going thirty miles an hour near Holland, N. Y., has been captured and is now in the Indiana State penitentiary under the name of Joseph J. Murphy, alias George Murphy. Mann is under indictment here for highway robbery.

He is one of the men who made a thrilling escape from the city jail, September 5, 1920, by sliding down a rope eighty feet to the ground and scaling the jail wall. Mann escaped with Joseph Kelly, subsequently caught and now serving a life sentence in the penitentiary for murder and robbery at the Sandy Spring, Md., National Bank.
