A man accused of stealing brass piping from a hardware store tried to run from authorities while he was in the hospital.

Police say Richard Porras told them his leg was hurting and was then taken to Lovelace Hospital.

Porras later told nurses he needed to use the restroom and that is when police say he took off running through the hospital.

Court documents say Porras tried to climb through the roof to escape.

An officer eventually caught Porras.
