Rapist Admi Headley, 34, was on the run from jail for three days when he was discovered collapsed in an alleyway outside the Bristol University students home.
Tom Phillips, 22, and Aidan Byrne, 21, invited the jailbird into their home and fed him up with soup, a chicken kiev, pasta and a chocolate muffin.
The students didn”t dial 999 – despite Headley opening up to them about how he spent ten years behind bars at HMP Leyhill in Wotton-Under-Edge, for rape and robbery.
And when they found out he was a fan of rap music – they all stayed up listening to Drake, Jay Z and Snoop Dogg while the inmate rapped every word.
The convict then called his 12-year-old son for the first time ever on the physics and philosophy student”s phone.
Tom said: “We were just chatting and we were a bit uncomfortable because there was a stranger in our house.
“But he was an interesting guy. He came from a culture that was completely different to ours.
“I would like to thank him because he trusted us and he was honest with us. He gave his life story. That is no small thing.”
After three hours, the duo walked the escaped jailbird to the police station where they hugged him and he handed himself to cops.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary confirmed that Headley attended a Bristol police station on the night of November 16 and handed himself in.
