Teenage offender back in custody after escape from hospital

A 15-year-old juvenile offender who escaped from a South Sacramento-area hospital Wednesday night has been captured.

The state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation reports that the boy was taken into custody without incident about 2 a.m today by the department's special agents and has been returned to the N.A. Chaderjian Youth Correctional Facility in Stockton.

About 7 p.m. Wednesday, the teen struggled with staff members at Sierra Vista Hospital on Bruceville Road. He obtained keys, pushed his way past nurses and escaped from the hospital wearing only a gray hospital gown.

The youth was committed to the Division of Juvenile Justice from Kings County Juvenile Court with a conviction for first-degree burglary, according to a Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation news release. Corrections officials said he will be charged with escape.
