The Westlake Police Department confirmed that Adkison was arrested Wednesday. Westlake is a western suburb in the Cleveland metropolitan area.

Around 1 p.m., he was spotted by a resident on a bike, before fleeing into woods nearby.

Officers set up a perimeter in the area and discovered Adkison in a nursing home around 1:25 p.m. Westlake police say he was arrested after a brief struggle.

Police say he is not cooperating with authorities.

On Tuesday, Adkison led Ohio authorities are a car and foot chase, after he was spotted sleeping in a pickup truck.

Adkison, 23, escaped from the Caldwell County Jail on Aug. 10 and has been on the run ever since. He is wanted on charges in several Missouri counties and for the rape and kidnapping of his ex-girlfriend, a University of Missouri student.

He was the center of a nearly week-long manhunt at the Lake of the Ozarks earlier this year.

Adkison's former girlfriend sent a tweet, stating: "Brian Adkison is back in custody. God is good!"
