DALLAS(CBSDFW.COM) - A person posing as a physician entered the Children's Medical Center Dallas facility Sunday.

A spokesperson for the hospital says staff, following existing security procedures, questioned the person who then left the building. The entire staff was notified as were other DFW-area hospitals, according to the statement.

Additional security personnel were brought in.

Dallas police arrested 23-year-old Terrance King.  So far he is not charged with allegedly posing as a doctor but is charged with theft, unauthorized use of a vehicle and evading arrest.

Sunday a man wearing a doctors coat with the name Dr. Ruize Munoz on it, appeared in the hallways of the hospital. When a Nurse asked him for a ID, he started to leave.

They say the jacket was stolen from Medical City
