A prisoner who escaped police custody in the Bronx Friday morning has been found, police sources told PIX11.

Kevin Taylor, 27, escaped police custody at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx just after 6:30 a.m., officials said.

Taylor was taken to the Belmont hospital overnight after he complained of pain and discomfort while in custody, police sources said. He asked officers to use the bathroom, so they uncuffed him from the gurney, police sources said. When he came out, he pushed past the officers and ran away.

Sources said Taylor was found at a home in the Bronx not too far from St. Barnabas and taken back into custody around 8:30 p.m.
