Barbour County authorities need your help in finding an inmate who escaped from the police.
Forty-four-year-old Billy Baker was in custody for burglary and theft.
Around 3 a.m. Thursday, a deputy was transporting Baker in the front seat of his police cruiser, because he had agreed to show authorities the places he burglarized.
On the way, Baker hit the officer over the head and caused him to crash his car.
The officer is okay, but Baker stole his gun and ran to a nearby house where he held the resident at gunpoint demanding her car keys.
Authorities say Baker then stole a 1995 white two door Ford Escort.
If you have any information on Baker's whereabouts, you are asked to call the Barbour County Sheriff's Department at 334-775-3434.
