A man who escaped from police custody while in handcuffs Tuesday afternoon has turned himself in to authorities.
The man, identified as Marc Vega, was placed under arrest for a domestic dispute in front of Pediatric Associates at 4500 Sheridan St. about 2 p.m., said Sgt. Lester Cochenour.
The female victim suffered injuries to her face and other areas of her body including her legs, Cochenour said.
Cochenour said Vega, donning handcuffs, managed to pry open the back door of the police car.
The man, who was covering his handcuffs with a green shirt and wearing a white or gray T-shirt, headed south through several Hollywood neighborhoods before finding himself in front of the Hollywood Police Department and turning himself in, police said.
Cochenour said unmarked and marked police cars, K-9 units and a helicopter searched for the man.
