Escaped Inmate

On August 9, 2022, at approximately 10:45 am, a Kern County Inmate, Marcos Rosales, age 34, was transported to a medical appointment in the 2900 block of F Street.   When the transportation deputy removed Rosales from the vehicle, the inmate assaulted the deputy by discharging an unidentified powdery substance into the deputy's eyes and face.   Rosales then fled on foot, and the injured deputy gave chase.   During the escape, Rosales carjacked a citizen in the 1700 block of 28th Street.  Rosales forced the victim out of her vehicle and fled the area in an unknown direction.   Deputies and Bakersfield Police Officers responded to the area and attempted to capture Rosales, who had fled before units arrived on the scene.
