'Violent psychopath' who fled Hawaii mental hospital captured in California

A serial killer escaped a state psychiatric hospital in Hawaii and boarded a flight to the Bay Area Escaped Mental Patient From Hawaii Arrested In Stockton

An escaped Hawaii man who "fits the criteria of a classic serial killer" was arrested in Northern California Wednesday after he caught a flight from Maui Sunday, the Associated Press reported.

Saito was considered "extremely unsafe and should not be approached", the Honolulu Police Department warned.

Hamman said she is shaken up, but glad Saito didn't hurt her.

A 2010 evaluation of Randall Saito by a psychiatrist says Saito had six significant relationships since he was committed to the Hawaii State Hospital in 1981.

Saito was committed to the hospital outside Honolulu in 1981. He then somehow chartered a plane to Maui before boarding another airplane to San Jose, authorities said. He says he's directed the attorney general to investigate.

Video footage from inside the taxi that drove Saito to the chartered flight shows him using a cellphone after climbing in with a large backpack.

A few minutes later he made another call: "Is this the captain that's going to fly to Maui today? Hi".

Saito was arrested in Stockton at about 10:30 a.m. PT this morning, the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office said, "as the result of a tip received from an alert taxi cab driver". The agency posted a photo on social media showing Saito surrounded by three deputies at a gas station.

Maui County police say Saito flew to Maui shortly after he left the hospital, but they don't know where he is now. An all-points bulletin went out an hour later.

He said the state has started reviewing patient privileges and public visitation policies at the hospital to determine if they are appropriate. There will also be more random patient counts and additional fencing on hospital property, he said.

In 1979, Saito brutally shot and repeatedly stabbed Sandra Yamashiro before dumping her corpse in a mall parking lot.

Honolulu Deputy Prosecutor Wayne Tashima who opposed Saito's motion for unescorted off-grounds privileges, described the 1979 murder as "heinous and brutal".

The suspensions come after Randall Saito left the Hawaii State Hospital on Sunday morning.

A court in 1993 denied Saito's request for conditional release, saying Saito still suffered from sexual sadism and necrophilia just as when he was committed to the hospital 12 years earlier, the Honolulu Advertiser reported.

The driver, who did not believe the passenger was the wanted man, took him to Walmart.

Himelblau said there is nearly no chance that Hawaii won't request extradition, given Saito's violent history.

The evaluation said the other three were reportedly with hospital staff members.

Scrutiny of the hospital around the escape and the fact that officials there failed to report him missing for about eight hours is likely.

"It is disturbing that he was given that much freedom", said Irving Tam, who lives near the facility.
