LOS ANGELES — A man sentenced to a mental health facility for stalking actress Mila Kunis was recaptured Wednesday in Santa Monica, about 50 miles from the Pomona institution he escaped from Saturday, sheriff’s officials said.

Stuart Lynn Dunn was taken into custody about a half-mile from the beach, a Los Angeles County spokeswoman said.

Dunn pleaded no contest to stalking Kunis in January 2013. He was sentenced to six months of rehabilitation, five years of probation and ordered to stay away from the actress and her representatives for 10 years.
