(Las Vegas, NV) — A manhunt is under way for a prisoner convicted in two violent sexual assaults who stabbed one of two police escorts and escaped in the Dallas area as he was being transferred from Florida to Nevada.

Alberto Morales, 42, used an object from his glasses and stabbed one of the officers once in the neck and three times in the back Monday night outside a Walmart in Grapevine, Texas.

Detectives were scheduled to fly with Morales to Nevada, where he was to serve a sentence of 30 years to life for a conviction of sexual assault with a weapon.

Morales pleaded guilty in 2008 to sexually assaulting a woman at an apartment blocks away from the Las Vegas Strip in 2003.
