    La Palma police capture escaped suspect still wearing handcuffs
    Nov. 6, 2016 Updated 8:08 p.m.

    LA PALMA – Police captured a suspect Sunday morning who escaped overnight from custody in a La Palma hospital while wearing handcuffs.

    Javier Anguiano, 30, of Santa Ana, was found hiding in a residential La Palma neighborhood, and still had the handcuffs on, said Police Sgt. Ron Wilkerson.

    Anguiano had been arrested Saturday night and charged with suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle and dangerous drugs, police said. He was being treated at La Palma Intercommunity Hospital for injuries from a traffic collision.

    At around 1:15 a.m., Anguiano escaped from the hospital, Wilkerson said. Though he was cuffed with his hands in front of him and wasn’t armed, he still was considered dangerous, authorities warned.

    Police called off their search for Anguiano at 3:45 a.m., Wilkerson said. Then, Sunday morning, police patroling a residential neighborhood about half a mile from the hospital spotted Anguiano, who they said ran away.

    About 20 officers, including a few from the Buena Park and Cypress police departments, set up a perimeter at about 8 a.m. in the neighborhood southeast of La Palma Avenue and Walker Street and searched for Anguiano.

    They found him hiding in the backyard of a home in the 8000 block of Sundance Street.

    “He was really muddy and dirty,” Wilkerson said. “It appears that he had been hiding in bushes and whatnot all night.”

    Once discovered, Anguiano was taken into custody. He will be booked at the La Palma Police Department and transferred to the Orange County Jail.

    Anguiano was arrested on charges of escape and outstanding warrants, in addition to the earlier charges, Wilkerson said. The nature of the warrants and the type of drugs he is suspected of possessing were not immediately available.
