NYPD nabs suspect who escaped custody in Manhattan hospital

It took a little over 24 hours but officers apprehended the 23-year-old woman who broke free from her handcuffs over the weekend.

Officials refused to provide details about how cops tracked down and again arrestedTiffany Neumann at around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday in the Upper West Side, across the island from where she escaped custody two nights earlier.

Authorities said charges related to Neumann’s break out were pending. She already faced petty larceny charges for allegedly dining and dashing on Aug. 29.

Neumann had been in central booking the following day when police said she complained about pain and that she was pregnant. She was gone by about 9 p.m. Sunday night, having jimmied her way out of the handcuffs and escaping on foot.

It remains unclear if Neumann is actually pregnant.

The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that a 24-year-old rookie officer assigned to watch Neumann at the hospital was suspended without pay for failing to keep track of her.

“I’ll make that very clear, by the way: The punishment that we will be putting in place for these types of events is going to be significant,” NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told reporters Monday.
