williamsA Philadelphia man’s freedom from the Westmoreland County Prison was short-lived.

Moments after Thomas Lee Williams, 36, was released from the Hempfield jail at about 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, police said, he attacked a West Leechburg woman in the parking lot, took her sport utility vehicle and fled with her 1-year-old grandson in the back seat.

Williams crashed two miles away in Youngwood about 15 minutes later, ran into a wooded area and was apprehended, according to county Park Police Chief Kirk Nolan.

Williams was back behind bars Wednesday on $250,000 bail.
