Police say 24-year-old Brandon Santana was arrested again on Friday afternoon.
Santana was previously arrested in connection with a homicide investigation Wednesday night and was in the 78th Precinct in Park Slope when he fled the station around 2 a.m.
A police spokesman said Santana was in the process of being escorted by a police officer from a holding cell to a restroom when he knocked the officer down and ran. It was unclear if he was handcuffed at the time.
As a result, the officer suffered minor injuries and was treated at Methodist Hospital.
The arrest was in relation to the death of 22-year-old Alexander Santiago on August 1, 2010.
Details of his capture are not yet available.
