Oakland Suspect Slips Off Cuffs, Escapes

It's a "whodunit" worthy of Houdini.

Make that  a "How'd he do it?" 

A suspected thief pulled off quite the disappearing act in Oakland Monday night, leaving officers baffled.

Oakland police say a 19-year-old man somehow managed to slip off his handcuffs while sitting in the back of a patrol car heading to the Glenn E. Dyer Detention Facility  near Oakland Police Department headquarters.

The suspect took off near 7th and Jefferson Streets, leaving the cuffs on the car seat.

He's still on the run Tuesday morning.
