Durham police are looking for a 23-year-old man who escaped custody while being treated at Duke University Hospital.

Deon Marquez McArthur was being treated at the hospital for a medical issue following his arrest Tuesday when he left the area.

McArthur was arrested on warrants for possession of stolen goods, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or deliver, maintaining a vehicle for the keeping and sale of controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
