Police Capture Escaped Patient
Police have captured a psychiatric patient charged with attempted murder after he escaped from an Ohio nursing home where he was ordered to stay when released on bond.

Authorities found Stroud on Thursday night about a mile from the nursing home after they received a call about a prowler. They arrested him without incident.
Last year, Stroud pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in Scioto County to attempted murder, felonious assault and misdemeanor inducing panic. Portsmouth Daily Times archives show he’s accused of threatening to kill himself, then firing a gun, during a standoff with deputies at his home.
