MAN WHO FLED FROM HOSPITAL ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after four days on the run from a hospital.

Reece Davis, 23, was being treated for mental health problems when he escaped from Croydon University Hospital on Thursday.

Davis, who has a history of violence, was missing for five days.

He was eventually arrested on suspicion of attempted murder yesterday (Tues) after a stabbing in Crystal Palace, south London, the day before.

Officers were called to Belvedere Road at about 9.20pm on Monday to reports of a man having been stabbed.

The victim, in his 30s, was taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

Davis evaded arrest until 12pm yesterday, when he was located in Streatham Common.

He currently remains in custody at a south London police station pending further enquires.

Davis had been receiving treatment after being detained under sections 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act.
