Updated:DERRY, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - State police said they've captured an assault suspect a day after he climbed a fence to escape from a western Pennsylvania mental hospital.
Troopers from the Greensburg barracks said 21-year-old Steven Michael Barron ran into the woods next to Torrance State Hospital in Derry Township after escaping shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Barron was captured about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, though police did not say in a news release Thursday how or where that happened and a barracks spokesman didn't immediately return a call for comment.
Barron had been court-committed to the facility and was known to be volatile and proficient with knives.
He remained jailed Thursday on an escape charge, awaiting a preliminary hearing July 17.
