A man who slipped out of a mental hospital in Queens earlier this week has been caught in Tennessee.

Authorities say Raymond Morillo, 33, was arrested Thursday night inside a Greyhound Bus Terminal in Memphis and will be extradited to the city.

Police say Morillo swapped clothes with a friend who was visiting him at the Creedmore Psychiatric Facility in Queens Village on Tuesday.

Both men later walked out of the hospital undetected.

Morillo previously served 14 years in prison for assault and manslaughter. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
