An Australian man allegedly escaped from a hotel quarantine station in Perth, escaped through a window, and knocked down an outer wall with rope-tied sheets.
ABC reported that at around 12:45 am on Tuesday, police claimed that Travis Hay Myles had escaped quarantine at the Rivervale hotel.
Myles traveled from Brisbane on Monday without a G2G permit. He applied for a permit upon arrival, but was denied because he did not meet the immigration requirements.
Myles ordered to leave Western Australia within 48 hours and was told to quarantine overnight at the Rivervale Hotel Quarantine.
“He used a rope made of sheets to climb through the windows of a room on the fourth floor and fled the area,” police said in a statement. News.com.au reported..
Police discovered Miles eight hours after fleeing on Beaufort Street on Mount Lawley. ABC reported..
Myles was negative for COVID-19, a disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, but was charged with failing to follow instructions and providing false or misleading information.
He made a video appearance at the Magistrates’ Court in Perth on Tuesday afternoon.
He did not apply for bail and was detained for 14 days when he was able to complete the quarantine. He can then go to court directly.
