MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – The hunt is on for an Arkansas inmate who walked away from a Region 8 clinic.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says around noon Friday, March 25,  50-year-old Phillip Rasmussen walked away from the non-secured McCoy Clinic in West Memphis.  An absconder warrant has been issued for his arrest.

In 2007 Rasmussen was sentenced to 15 years in prison on a felony charge of battery in the second degree.  Investigators say while he was locked up in the Baxter County Detention Center, Rasmussen attacked another jail inmate.

Since Rasmussen has ties to the Baxter County area, the public is asked to be on the alert.  Rasmussen is not considered armed, but he has been known to display violent tendencies.
