Conrado Ferrer domestic Violence Suspect Escapes From Hospital in Montebello

 MONTEBELLO (CNS) - A domestic violence suspect who allegedly bit and
choked his girlfriend and then suffered a broken arm while fleeing police in
Montebello early this morning escaped from a hospital where he was brought for
treatment.
   Conrado Ferrer, 23, got into a fight with his girlfriend about 1:10
a.m., said Montebello police Detective Paul Antista.
   ``During the altercation, suspect Ferrer bit his girlfriend on her
finger, pushed her to the ground causing her to hit her head on a block wall
and then began choking her,'' the detective said.
   Someone in a passing vehicle called police, but Ferrer fled when they
arrived, Antista said.
   As he tried to escape, Ferrer jumped from an apartment building roof and
broke his arm, according to Antista.
   Once in custody, he said he wanted to kill himself, Antista said.
   Ferrer was brought to Beverly Hospital for treatment of the arm injury
and a psychiatric evaluation, but at 5:19 a.m. he escaped the hospital, wearing
only a flimsy gown. A search proved fruitless, Antista said.
   Ferrer is described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds
with brown eyes, short black hair and a beard. He also has a tattoo on his left
hand.
   Anyone with information of his whereabouts was urged to call Montebello
police at (323) 887-1313.
