    The suspect escaped from the back of a parked police car in Brooklyn.

    Police have found the robbery suspect who fled from their custody on Thanksgiving -- not far from the police car she escaped from.

    Janine Power, 28, of Brooklyn, was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly robbing a cab driver of $30 and his cell phone.

    After Power completed the arrest process, she snuck out the back of a parked cop car in front of Brooklyn Central Booking, where she was taken after her arrest was completed.

    She was found and arrested Saturday afternoon at a gas station on Coney Island Avenue and Avenue P with Anthony D'Angelo, 41, of Staten Island.

    Charges are pending against both of them.
