A man accused of stealing a car in Philadelphia escaped police custody while in handcuffs at a hospital on Monday morning, authorities said.

Alleem Bordan, 29, remains on the run after fleeing from officers around 6:45 a.m. at Temple University Episcopal Hospital at 100 East Lehigh Avenue in Kensington, FOX29 Philadelphia reported.

Two officers were walking back to their patrol car when Bordan sprinted away.
