NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD says authorities have arrested an attempted murder suspect who escaped from police custody while handcuffed last month.

Police say 23-year-old Tareek Arnold was taken into custody Monday and charged with assault on a police officer and escape.

Investigators say he was being taken to Manhattan stationhouse on June 23 when he pushed an officer to the ground and took off.

It’s unclear if Arnold has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
