This photo provided by the Santa Clara County Sheriff on Friday, Nov. 25, 2016, shows a window of the Santa Clara County Jail where inmates cut through the bars and escaped on Wednesday.

Campbell was booked into the jail in February of 2015 on charges including robbery, false imprisonment, criminal threats, and firearms violations, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Santa Clara Sheriff's office said the first inmate who escaped is 33-year-old Rogelio Chavez, who stands about six feet tall, weighs 190 pounds and has the letter B tattooed on the left side of his neck. The others were quickly captured. This photo provided by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office shows Laron Campbell. Authorities asked for the public's help in tracking down the pair of potentially unsafe California prisoners, who after cutting through the bars on Thanksgiving Eve, rappelled to the ground on a bedsheet rope and escaped.

Four inmates from the Santa Clara County Jail in Northern California escaped by rappelling from a second-story window and two remain at large, authorities reported Thursday.

It is unknown if the men are armed, but authorities are warning people to call 911 and not approach or try to apprehend the suspects themselves. He is described as black, 6 feet 4 inches tall and 220 pounds.

A deputy officer on patrol around the jail's perimeter spotted the men as they made their escape, the Associated Press reports.

Rogelio Chavez and Laron Campbell escaped with two other prisoners by cutting through the bars and rappelling to the ground. Meanwhile, four inmates spent Wednesday night escaping from a prison in San Jose, California.

Chavez has been incarcerated since August 17 on various charges, including burglary, extortion, false imprisonment, resisting arrest and multiple firearms violations. Sheriff's officials say that section is older than other parts of the jail and was constructed in the 1950s.

Members of the Sheriff's search-and-rescue team are using bloodhounds "to get more information about the direction of travel" by the escaped inmates, Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Glennon said.

The inmates cut the bars off a second story jail cell window and then used bed sheets to climb down. The others were captured in San Francisco.
