Police in Aachen said they had arrested a prison warder suspected of assisting in the escape.

Berlin -- German police set up roadblocks around the western city of Essen Saturday in the hunt for two jailbreakers said to be armed and dangerous.

Peter Paul Michalski, 46, and Michael Heckhoff, 50, had escaped Thursday from a prison at Aachen, where they were serving sentences for murder and attempted murder.

They attacked a prison warder and a porter before fleeing in a taxi for Cologne, where they hijacked a car driven by a 19-year-old female student.

Running out of fuel late Friday, they abandoned the car and its driver and disappeared.
