A tense standoff involving a jail escapee ended peacefully with the capture of the inmate Thursday night in Vermillion, South Dakota.

Authorities say 19 year old Jubal Grant assaulted a corrections officer and escaped from the Charles Mix County Jail Thursday morning.

He later stole a car, and hid in a Vermillion apartment.

An officer spotted the stolen vehicle in Vermillion around 2pm and police surrounded the apartment complex for several hours.

A robot was sent in by the South Dakota State Patrol to communicate with the escapee, and he eventually surrendered after asking for some food and a chance to talk to his mother.

Grant is back in custody in the Clay County Jail in Vermillion facing several charges.
