A man charged with attacking a Wayne County deputy and then escaping from the courthouse is expected to be back in court Thursday.
Abraham Pearson allegedly attacked Deputy Harrison Tolliver with a sharpened comb on Sept. 9 as he was being escorted in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice to face sentencing for carjacking and armed robbery.
Tolliver then fled the courthouse had police on a day-long manhunt for him until a tipster spotted him on a street and called 911.
