(Wernersville) -- State police in Berks County say another inmate has escaped from a correctional facility where a different inmate had fled Sunday.

Police say 25-year-old William Davis escaped through a fire door at the Wernersville Community Corrections Center in South Heidelberg Township around 8:50 p.m. Monday.

Police say a warrant is out for his arrest.

On Sunday, police reported that another inmate fled the facility on foot while he was being escorted by a staff member. Police say he jumped over a railing on a flight of stairs, ran through a courtyard and climbed a fence to escape.

Police say that inmate, 28-year-old Ramon Antonio Beachy, turned himself in at the Lancaster County Prison the next day.
