A Mid-Missouri man faces additional charges after attempting to escape from police custody in February.

James Glass, 28, was charged in Cole County with escape or attempted escape from custody while under arrest for a felony and first-degree property damage, according to documents filed this week.

Glass was confronted Feb. 2 after officers responded to a call about a disturbance in the 5100 block of South Brooks Drive, according to a Cole County Sheriff's Office probable cause statement. A woman at the residence said Glass had kicked her door several times, causing damage. It had been hit hard enough to separate the door from the wall. The woman said Glass was a friend of another woman inside the residence.

The second woman said she had picked Glass up from the train station, and he had tried to assault her following an argument.

She allegedly had multiple marks indicating an assault. She said she had crawled through a window with her child in order to escape.

She directed authorities to Glass's residence, where he was arrested. Deputies found multiple items taken from the women's house.

Glass then attempted to flee after a deputy tried to adjust one of his cuffs, and authorities found him in another apartment hidden beneath a pile of clothes.

Glass had previously been charged with attempted burglary, escape from custody and the property damage charge, but the latter two charges were moved into their own case. The burglary case is still ongoing.
