A man who escaped from police custody Friday night is still on the loose. Police spent part of Friday night and Saturday searching along Seneca Street near Cazenovia Park for Edward Siwy, 35. He's a white man, 6'1", 170 lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair. He slipped out of West Seneca town court where he was being arraigned on shoplifting and endangering the welfare of a child charges. Police say Siwy was not handcuffed because he has a cast on his arm. He's not considered to be armed or dangerous, but police say anyone who sees him should not approach him and instead call 9-1-1 or West Seneca police
