Hip hop producer Derrick Harris aka True Master is accused of escaping the custody of authorities after his arraignment on a sexual assault charge.

Harris, a producer for the rap group Wu Tang Clan, was initially arrested after a 43 year old woman alleged he violently beat and sexually attacked her in his apartment on Monday (September 12.)

Harris allegedly escaped during a custody hand-off from the NYPD to the Department of Corrections Wednesday.

He was caught about six hours later at his apartment and now face additional charges including felony escape and harassment.

"I never saw anything negative about him," said Harvey Scales, Harris' neighbor. "He liked a lot of ladies. I was a little jealous because he had that charisma where women were attracted to him like flies to honey."
