PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - A man who escaped from a mental hospital in Pembroke Pines has been found.

Police say 30-year-old Leandro Guymaraes left the South Florida State Mental Hospital at 800 East Cypress Drive in Pembroke Pines without approval on Saturday night.

Guymaraes was court ordered to the facility due to his schizophrenia and previous violent tendencies. Police arrested him in Miami-Dade County early Monday.

He is being held at Turner Guilford Knight Detention Center with no bond.
