The man charged with kidnapping and murdering an Anchorage barista attempted to flee Wednesday at a hearing in federal court.
U.S. marshals say 34-year-old Israel Keyes was quickly subdued.
Supervisory deputy Dave Long says handcuffs had been removed and Keyes broke leg restraints.
Long says Keyes tried to dash but was grabbed by a marshal. Long says Keyes either tried to leap over the bar separating the public from the defendant's table or his momentum carried him over it.
Other marshals descended on Keyes.
He's charged with abducting 18-year-old Samantha Koenig on Feb. 1 from the coffee stand where she worked. Her body was recovered April 2 from a lake north of the city.
