Decatur police are looking for a woman it says helped an inmate escape.

Police are looking for Brittany Samone Orr, who is accused of helping Mario Kellogg escape from police on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Decatur police arrested and charged Kellogg with first degree assault in connection with a December shooting that injured a bystander and a dog.

While en route to be examined at the hospital for a preexisting injury Tuesday afternoon, he escaped.

Kellogg now has an active warrant for third degree escape.
