An escaped prisoner who struck a detective with an unmarked police van in Ridgewood as he attempted to flee Monday evening has been caught in Manhattan, cops said.

A Queens Narcotics Detective sustained an injury on his right leg at about 6:55 p.m. at Cooper Avenue and 59th Street while trying to catch 38-year-old Bryan McMenamin, an escaped prisoner who was arrested by Queens Narcotics for selling drugs within the confines of the 104th Precinct, police said.

McMenamin was apprehended at about 2:20 p.m. Tuesday inside an apartment on 15 Saint James Place in downtown Manhattan, according to officials.

In addition to facing charges for criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection to his initial arrest, McMenamin faces charges of second-degree attempted murder, grand larceny, escape, resisting arrest and tampering with evidence following his escape, cops said.
