Attempted murder suspect flees NYPD custody in the Bronx

An attempted murder suspect escaped from a Bronx NYPD stationhouse Monday after shoving a detective, cops and police sources said. 

The 23-year-old escapee – identified by police sources as Edurado Lacen – pushed a detective who had been processing him at the 40th Precinct station house on Alexander Avenue near East 138th Street in Mott Haven around 1:30 p.m., authorities said. 

Footage obtained by The Post shows him running out of the precinct uncuffed, with a detective trailing behind.
