It took police 13 months to track down Delgado, who was serving a 16-year sentence for child sexual abuse and robbery. Authorities offered a reward for his capture, and that helped police find him in the port city of Callao. 

He told police he broke out of jail so he could see his mother. 

Police had questioned his brother and accused him of being an accomplice, but soon realized he was duped just like the prison guards. 

Delgado is now back in police custody and is being transferred to a maximum security prison.
