COLLETON CO., SC (WTOC) - A convict who escaped during transport has been captured after carjacking a vehicle around 9:30 Saturday morning, according to Lt. Steven Robinson of the Allendale Sherriff's Office.
Perry Alton Sullivan, 37, was captured at the intersection of Hwy. 641 and Hwy. 601 after a short chase into Colleton County.
Sullivan's capture follows a two-day manhunt which began on Thursday after he overpowered a Stephens County deputy during transport, taking his cruiser, shotgun and service arm. Officers have recovered the stolen weapons.
He was then spotted in Allendale County when he attempted to carjack a woman, but was unsuccessful as she was able to get away and alert authorities.
Sullivan will be housed at the Hampton County Jail on Cemetery Road.
