An Albuquerque man is behind bars after he escaped while in handcuffs last week.
Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies told KOB Eyewitness News 4 they were taking Jose Armijo into custody for a probation violation last Wednesday when he managed to take off running.
A criminal complaint states the deputy who ran after him tripped and hurt his head, and that’s how Armijo got away.
Deputies used phone records to track Armijo down to a home near Indian school and Morris Wednesday.
