Police are on the hunt for an escaped prisoner — dressed only in his underwear and a pair of handcuffs — on Staten Island, police said.

The 41-year-old, identified as Hector Calo, bolted out the back door at 105 Van Duzer St. in Tompkinsville after his parole officer showed up with a couple of NYPD cops and cuffed him about 7 a.m., police said.

Calo then fled into woods.

Police were still searching the neighborhood for Calo, who is handcuffed and said to be dressed in a T-shirt and briefs.

It’s not immediately clear why authorities wanted to arrest him.

Calo does not live at the location he fled from and police said his connection to it is still unknown.

A prisoner who escaped from police custody in Staten Island was picked up in the Bronx early Friday, police announced.

Officers cuffed 41-year-old Hector Calo at the home of his ex-girlfriend in the Morris Houses around 1:15 a.m., according to officials.

Calo, a parolee, had slipped out the back door of a Tompkinsville residence after he was placed under arrest on drug charges around 7 a.m., police said. He was wearing only handcuffs and his underwear when he made his break, officials said at the time.

Calo was arrested without incident but had a loaded gun in his possession, according to cops.

He is charged with possession and sale of a controlled substance, police said, as well as possession of a loaded firearm, escaping arrest, and acting in a manner injurious to a child–because a youngster was present in the apartment where he had the loaded gun.
