Randall Saito, 59, escaped from Hawaii State Hospital in Kaneohe, Oahu this weekend. Police said he took a taxi to a chartered plane in Honolulu bound for Maui and then boarded another plane to San Jose, California. HPD received a tip that Saito was headed to his brothers home in Stockton, California and authorities in Stockton were immediately forwarded the tip. Saito reportedly left the state hospital around 10 a.m. Sunday and didn’t return, police said. Hospital staff called 911 to report his disappearance shortly after 7:30 p.m. — two hours after he landed in San Jose. However Wednesday morning, November 15, Saito was arrested by Northern California Police.

Saito was acquitted of a gruesome 1979 murder of Sandra Yamashiro by reason of insanity and committed to Hawaii State Hospital in 1981. He shot her in the face and fatally stabbed her, authorities said. Her body was later found in her car at the mall. However in 2002, Saito was granted unescorted leave from the facilityDeputy Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Albert said, “He is a psychopathic predator whose mental condition continues to represent a serious danger to the community.”

It was not immediately clear how Saito was able to leave the facility. Hawaii State Hospital Administrator William May said officials are fully cooperating with law enforcement and the appropriate steps will be taken if it is confirmed that Saito received help from someone inside the facility.
