A New York City man on the run after a violent home invasion in Orange County is now in police custody.
Police say Jamel McCaskill broke into a home in Washingtonville back in January and stabbed someone living there with a large kitchen knife.
McCaskill allegedly fled the scene and hadn't been seen until he was arrested last Friday in New Jersey for aggravated assault on a police officer and weapons charges.
He's now awaiting extradition to Orange County to answer to charges.
