Police arrest man who escaped custody at Mount Sinai

Toronto Police say Andrew Smith, the man who escaped custody at Mount Sinai Hospital last week, has been arrested.

Constable David Hopkinson says a tip from the public lead police to a cafe near King Street West and Charlotte Street where Smith was, "arrested without incident."

He had been in jail on allegations of possession of a dangerous weapon and for allegedly threatening the death of a security officer at the University of Toronto downtown. Hopkinson says he'll now be charged with escape lawful custody.

Smith had been taken to Mount Sinai last Wednesday after complaining of a medical problem. 

He managed to get away from officers and had been on the run ever since.
