DETROIT (WXYZ) - The convicted carjacker who allegedly stabbed a Wayne County deputy in the neck and caused a day-long manhunt across Detroit will face a long list of new charges Wednesday.
Abraham Pearson is set for video arraignment on crimes that include the attempted murder of that Wayne County sheriff's deputy.
Monday the 25-year-old escaped from the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice before his sentencing by stabbing the deputy with a comb he fashioned into a shank.
Pearson caused a city-wide manhunt after carjacking a woman and disappearing for hours.
A 9-1-1 call led to his arrest after a brief chase near the free way on the city's east side.
The deputy he's accused of stabbing was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital and has since been released.
