Montevideo man among attempted escapees from sex offender facility


MONTEVIDEO -- A 55-year-old man, formerly of Montevideo, was among the four sex offenders who attempted to escape Saturday from the Minnesota Sex Offender Program facility at Moose Lake.

According to the Associated Press, Steven Allan Housman was one of the men who tried to break out of the facility around 6:15 p.m. but didn't make it past a secure perimeter. Instead, security officers apprehended them and put the facility on lockdown while they accounted for the offenders.
