DETROIT A Detroit convict accused of stabbing a sheriff's deputy with a broken comb during a violent courthouse escape is facing a raft of new charges after being captured following a daylong manhunt.

Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon says a tip from the public lead police Monday night to 25-year-old Abraham Pearson, of Detroit, a convicted carjacker accused of attacking a sheriff's deputy Monday morning at a downtown courthouse and escaping.

Napoleon said during a news conference that Pearson was taken into custody after a short chase.

He said Pearson will face 11 additional charges related to his alleged attack and escape.
