Two prison inmates who escaped from a prison in Rome, Italy in a surprising twist left a note for the prison guards promising to be back.
In the note, the two prisoners wrote that they will be back while going further to explain that they had a business to take care of.
The escapees identified as cousins, Davad Zukanovic, 40, and Lil Ahmetovic, 46, broke out of Rebibbia Prison in the middle of the night on June 2.
The duo had scaled the prison wall using a water hose left in a courtyard.
According to a report by the Repubblica Daily, the prison escapees left a note explaining they had personal reasons to take care of but promise to back.
They wrote that their action was spurred by “the need to protect their children from a nasty business they had gotten themselves into,” the Repubblica Daily said in a paraphrased version of the note.
The inmates specified that only they could make things right, as their wives were also both in jail.
At the end of the signed note, Zukanovic and Ahmetovic promised to return in about 15 days once everything was sorted, the paper said.
The men were sentenced for up to 2029 in prison for non-violent crimes, including fraud and receiving stolen goods.
