PRYOR, OK — Pryor man escapes from Delaware County Jail

A Pryor resident has escaped from Delaware County Jail.

Authorities are searching for Pete Wolf, 51, who escaped from the Delaware County Jail around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Wolf was being held in Delaware County on assault and battery charges. He escaped with Anthony Anderson, 21, Sapulpa, who was being held for second degree rape. Both are considered armed and dangerous.

“We had information that he could be in Pryor. But we have thoroughly checked those areas and we are confident those locations are secure,” said Mayes County Sheriff's Investigator Jason Treat. “Rumors that they were spotted near the hospital are not true to our knowledge and investigation.”

As a precaution, Pryor Schools were placed on lockdown.

“We did go to precautionary external lockdown this morning. On advice from the police department (School Resource Officer Jeremy Cantrell). We were told there was no imminent threat. It was just a precaution,” said Pryor School Superintendent Don Raleigh.

Grove Police Department is involved in the manhunt and issued an alert around 9 a.m.

“Be on the look out for these two escapees from Delaware County. Anthony Scott Anderson (right) date of birth 5/3/91, white male, black hair, brown eyes, 5'8, 150 pounds. Pete Wolfe (left) date of birth 8/18/62, Indian male, black hair, brown eyes, 5'10, 165 pounds. Considered armed and dangerous.”

Around 11 a.m., the Grove Police Department issued an update describing a possible vehicle the escapees could be driving, “1991 blue Ford Taurus station wagon, has damage to the rear bumper and luggage racks, tag number 617BAL,” Grove PD stated.

“At this time, they are still at large,” Mayes County Sheriff’ Captain Rod Howell said at 3:30 p.m. “We are not actively searching for them at this point but we are still on alert. Officers are being vigilant but we are not in manhunt mode.”
