A na­tion­wide man­hunt was un­der­way for an Ohio rape sus­pect who over­pow­ered a sher­iff ’s deputy in a trans­port van and stole his gun. Pauld­ing County Sher­iff Jason Lan­ders said Satur­day that FBI agents and U.S. Mar­shals have joined the search for Bran­den Pow­ell, 32, af­ter his es­cape at about noon Fri­day on a trip from a psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tal in Toledo to the Pauld­ing County Jail in north­west Ohio. Lan­ders said Pow­ell was in re­straints when he jumped over the seat and put the deputy in a head­lock, caus­ing the van to crash. Pow­ell got the deputy’s gun dur­ing a strug­gle and or­dered the deputy to re­move his re­straints.
