Escaped Mental Patient From Hawaii Arrested In Stockton

A man deemed "dangerous" after he escaped from a Hawaii psychiatric hospital and boarded a plan for San Jose was captured in Stockton this morning. 

Officials say 59-year-old Randall Saito was arrested about 10:30 a.m. at a gas station near Highway 99 and Waterloo Road after a taxi cab driver called officers. Honolulu CrimeStoppers Sgt. Chris Kim says police received a tip that Saito was on his way to his brother's home in Stockton. That tip was forwarded to Stockton law enforcement. 

Saito, who was acquitted of a 1979 murder by reason of insanity, escaped from a Hawaii psychiatric hospital over the weekend, took a chartered plane in Honolulu bound for Maui and then boarded another plan for San Jose.
