Officials say the man who escaped from the Torrance State Hospital Tuesday evening will be in court next week for a preliminary hearing on escape charges.
Police say 21-year-old Steven Barron of Crabtree was captured around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. The exact details of his capture have not yet been released. Barron escaped from the facility around 6:10 p.m. Tuesday by scaling a chain-link fence and fleeing through a wooded area along Route 217.
Police say Barron was arrested in March by the Greensburg City Police and he was charged with simple assault and harassment. He was also cited for disorderly conduct last November for allegedly making an obscene gesture in a county park.
