A prisoner broke out of jail to wish his girlfriend a happy birthday before returning later that day.
Dragan Bošković, 26, escaped from a prison near his hometown of Kolasin in central Montenegro, where he was serving a life sentence for murder, by overpowering guards and scaling a ten foot prison wall.
He went straight to his 19-year-old girlfriend's house but two hours later turned himself in to cops who had started a manhunt for him.
He told officers: "I promised my girlfriend that, no matter what, I would say happy birthday to her but I wasn't allowed to use the prison phone.
"I had no other option but to get the message to her personally."
