Surrey RCMP says a tip from a keen-eyed citizen on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside has led to the arrest of a man who escaped from the Surrey Pretrial Centre on Thursday.

Police say Mustafa Sa’Ada was taken into custody by Vancouver police officers on West Hastings near Carrall Street.

The 32-year-old was being processed for release Thursday, and upon learning his release conditions were not met and he would be jailed at the Pretrial Centre, he fled on foot.
