MCKEESPORT, Pa. (AP) - Police are searching for a man who escaped from a Pittsburgh-area hospital while in custody after an alleged domestic dispute.

Police say Glassport police arrested Alexander Erb and then took him to UPMC McKeesport hospital for treatment early Monday.

McKeesport police Capt. Timothy Hanna says the 26-year-old Erb was wanted on an arrest warrant in another jurisdiction and was supposed to be transferred to Allegheny County sheriff’s deputies.

Hanna says Erb fled the hospital around 1 a.m. Authorities aren’t saying whether he should be considered dangerous.
