A NYS parolee wanted for hitting a Central New York Police officer with a vehicle is in police custody again after he was found hiding in a ceiling.

That is according to officials with the Chenango County Sheriff's Office who say several leads helped locate Hayes Cutting Jr (pictured above in the Puma hoodie).

Earlier this week, a Town of Norwich police officer approached Hayes Cutting Jr. in the parking lot of the Stewart's Shop on state Route 23. It was reported that Cutting Jr - a New York State Parolee - was being sought on an active arrest warrant. However, Cutting Jr. and a passenger sped off as the officer approached, resulting in the cop being hit with the vehicle and suffering leg injuries.

After follow up on several leads, Cutting Jr. several police agencies investigated a location in Town of Oneonta. After searching the location for two hours, officials did finally locate the man, saying the 43-year-old was found hiding in a ceiling of the building.

Hayes Cutting Jr. is facing charges of Assault in the second degree, tampering with physical evidence, unlawfully fleeing a police officer and resisting arrest.

Meanwhile, a few hours later, the sheriff's office also said it had located and arrested the passenger who was with Cutting Jr. at the Stewart's Shop when the police officer was struck. Jess Dann was taken into custody, however, police have not said what if any charges he is facing.
