Suspect Escapes From Montebello Hospital

By City News Service

A handcuffed suspect already in custody for making terrorist threats was arrested again last Friday after he ran from a hospital in Montebello, where he had been taken for treatment of a cut finger, authorities said.

The man in his early 20s was in a deputy’s custody in the parking lot of Beverly Hospital about 11:30 p.m. when he made his break, Sgt. Pablo Partida of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station.

The area was surrounded and an air unit equipped with a thermal imaging camera spotted him hiding under a truck not far from the hospital, he said.

The man, who had been cut prior to his original arrest on suspicion of threatening a victim in the 5400 block of Rosemead Boulevard, was taken into custody just after midnight and now faces possible additional charges of escaping, Partida said.
