Toronto Police have arrested a man that escaped police custody during a trip to Mount Sinai Hospital on March 15. Andrew Smith, 36, was located near King and Charlotte on Thursday afternoon.
Smith evaded police for more than a week, having fled from Mount Sinai after receiving treatment for an undisclosed medical concern.
Toronto Police took to Twitter to thank the public for their assistance. A tweet posted on March 23 credited “tips from citizens” for helping to locate Smith and bring him back into custody.
Smith was first arrested on March 7 after allegedly threatening to kill a U of T security guard and for possessing dangerous weapons. The initial safety report issued by U of T advised students to travel in groups, warning that Smith has a history of violence and of frequenting the northwest side of campus.
