MONTEBELLO, Calif. (KABC) -- A 23-year-old domestic violence suspect who escaped from a hospital in Montebello early Saturday has turned himself in to police.

The suspect, identified as Conrado Ferrer, escaped from Beverly Hospital, where he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation. Police say he was wearing only a patient gown.

The suspect was taken to the hospital after making suicidal statements following a domestic dispute. Police say Ferrer bit his girlfriend's finger, pushed her to the ground and attempted to choke her.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with further information is asked to call the Montebello Police Department at (323) 887-1313.
