1228-kylie-jenner-tmz-02Kylie Jenner is safe for another 72 hours ... but after that, the crazed guy who's been trying to get at her could be on the loose again.

The man who tried to force his way onto Kylie's property last week has been caught again, after escaping from a psych ward. L.A. County Sheriff's deputies found the man and put him on another 72 hour hold. 

TMZ broke the story ... Kylie's trespasser showed up at her security gate and tried strong-arming his way in. He was taken into custody and put on a psych hold ... where we're told he escaped.

The guy believes he's "soulmates" with the reality star.

Our Kardashian sources say the man will not go away and he's been at her property at least 10 times.

Law enforcement tells us the man will be watched more closely, but these 72 hour holds are just a stop gap.
