An escapee from a state-operated psychiatric hospital is charged with stealing a police squad car in Anoka County. Prosecutors say 23-year-old Mattu Chuol left the Anoka Metro Regional Treatment Center without permission last Thursday. Officers arrived and found Chuol walking along a sidewalk. The Star Tribune says he spotted the squad car and took off. One officer got out of her squad and began pursuing Chuol. Authorities say that’s when he jumped into her car and took off. A few blocks later he stopped in the middle of the road and surrendered.
