RIKERS ISLAND, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Two corrections officers were hurt capturing a Rikers Island inmate who escaped his cell and sparked a multi-agency manhunt on the island overnight, a law enforcement source told PIX11 Thursday.

Two members of the communications unit were handing batteries to search units early Thursday when they spotted Naquan Hill, 24, who was reported missing Wednesday night, at a toxicology trailer located about 100 yards from Anna M. Kross Center where he was housed, a source with the Department of Corrections said.

A fight ensued between the three, but Hill was eventually apprehended, according to the DOC source.
