WEST HARLEM — They might want to cuff his ankles this time.
Cops have collared a man who escaped police custody over the weekend by fleeing into the subway station on 116th Street and Lenox Avenue, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Tuesday.
Lawrence Mason, 52, was caught Tuesday morning on 112th Street after he was spotted by one of the NYPD's Warrant Squads, Kelly said.
"They were not looking for him precisely, but they saw him on the street and took him into custody," the commissioner told reporters on Tuesday.
Mason, of Queens, escaped from cops Saturday as they were in the process of arresting him for allegedly dealing crack in Harlem, police said.
Police said Mason has a history of more than a dozen drug-related arrests.
He was expected to be arraigned on charges of reckless endangerment, obstructing government administration, escape, bail jumping, criminal mischief, jumping a subway turnstile and resisting arrest, according to police.
