Officers say he pulled his leg shackles higher on his legs in an attempt to make it easier to run out of the building. 

He was eventually captured by a CO and physician's assistant who pinned and handcuffed him. 

Deputies and members of the Medina Police Department arrived to secure Bonk, and the nurses and CO were treated for injuries, WIVB reports. 

Bonk was originally charged with rape and tattooing a child and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

He is charged with escape, resisting arrest, two counts of third-degree assault, and second-degree assault on a CO. 

His bond is set at $30,000.
