ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An escapee from the Albany Transitional Center was recaptured overnight hiding under a bed in an Albany home.  Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies and U.S. Marshals captured 20-year old Joshua Potter hiding at 215 Hillside Drive.

Albany Police Investigators say Potter and 24-year old Trevor Barber pulled a gun on 37-year old Tracey Porter at Gameland Billiards on North Slappey about 10:20 Wednesday night and demanded his car keys.

Porter set off the car's panic alarm and ran inside.  Barber was arrested nearby. Potter escaped, but was arrested after a 24 hour manhunt.
