A witness called police shortly after 6 a.m. last Friday after seeing a man dressed in a hospital gown jump over the fence at Public Storage, 1296 Kings Highway Cutoff.
When officers arrived, they located the man on the third floor at a storage unit he had rented. He had in his possession a wheelchair that was the property of St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, according to the report.
He told police he had just been released from the hospital and took the bus to Public Storage.
Police had the man, and the wheelchair, taken back to St. Vincent's in an ambulance.
