Escaped prisoner arrested in Gramercy Park
NEW YORK (WABC) -- 1, 2, and 3 train service has resumed between Christopher Street and 42nd Street after a police investigation.
A prisoner escaped police custody, jumped onto the train tracks and fled.
The escaped prisoner was later arrested at Lexington Avenue and East 22nd Street in Gramercy Park at around 8:30 p.m. Friday.
He still had handcuffs on him. He was spotted by counter terrorism officers.
Police say he had been arrested for selling marijuana.
He was being transported to a police precinct when he somehow escaped custody on Christopher Street and fled into the subway station.
It's unclear how he got to Lexington and 22nd Street.
