"Women who escaped Edmonton prison arrested at downtown escape room"
The women asked the standard questions about the popular problem-solving and strategy game rooms where players are given clues and a time limit in which to find their way out.
Rebecca Liaw took the women down a back hallway to show them one of the theme rooms and explained how they worked.
"While I was holding that conversation with them, we kind of turned only to find the hallway full of five police officers," she said Wednesday.
"Then they were arrested immediately, and that was the end of that conversation."
