A shackled woman showed up at a Staten Island police precinct and told cops she’d escaped a converted bus where her boyfriend had tortured her — sparking a search that yielded an active pipe bomb, law enforcement sources said Thursday.

Alexander Isaac, 30, allegedly held the woman captive inside his mobile home on Central Avenue near Slosson Terrace in Brighton Heights and raped and abused her, according to the criminal complaint against him.

The victim — who had shackles and handcuffs on her arms and legs — was able to flee and turned up at the 120th Precinct stationhouse on Monday, sources told The Post.

She told investigators that Isaac abducted her and kept her inside the bus, where he bound her arms and legs and placed a T-shirt around her mouth, pushed her face down on a bed and raped her, according to the complaint filed in Richmond County Criminal Court.

He also punched her in the lip, eye and face, slammed her against a wall and struck her with a belt, she said, according to the court document.

“You made it worse for yourself,” he allegedly snarled while assaulting her, the complaint states.

Detectives arrested Isaac on Tuesday and applied for a search warrant. Investigators found what turned out to be an active pipe bomb, as well as multiple chemicals, inside the bus, while combing through it on Wednesday, according to the sources.

Cops also found a 3D printer, along with a printed part for a Glock pistol — which appeared to be an inoperable ghost gun, the sources said.

The NYPD’s Bomb Squad took the explosive device to the department’s outdoor range for analysis.

The city Department of Environmental Protection examined the chemicals and determined that all of the substances were available commercially — but they needed to be removed and disposed of properly.

Isaac was charged with criminal sex act, rape, kidnapping, assault, unlawful imprisonment and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the complaint.

He was ordered held on $700,000 bond or $200,000 cash bail. A temporary order of protection was issued, according to online records.

Isaac is scheduled back in court Friday.

A New York City parking garage attendant was hit with an attempted murder charge after confronting an armed thief and wrestling the gun away before opening fire on the suspect.

Moussa Diarra, 57, is also charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the incident that occurred at around 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

The attendant had observed a man looking into cars on the second floor of the West 31st Street garage in Manhattan police said, according to the New York Post. Diarra suspected the man was stealing, so he brought him outside and questioned him about what was inside his bag.

The man then pulled a gun on Diarra, who attempted to grab the firearm. The gun was fired, leaving Diarra with a shot to the stomach and grazed in the ear by a bullet.

Diarra proceeded to turn the firearm on the potential thief and shot him in the chest.

The alleged thief, 59-year-old Charles Rhodie, was also charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He also faces a burglary charge, police said.

Diarra and Rhodie were transported to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition after Saturday's incident at the parking garage.

The charges against Diarra for defending himself against an attacker come after a similar incident last year. In July, Manhattan bodega clerk Jose Alba was charged with murder after a confrontation in the store with an angry customer who attacked him behind his counter. Alba stabbed and killed the attacker in self-defense but found himself at the Rikers Island jail charged with murder.

Alba (THE VICTIM) spent six days in jail until District Attorney Alvin Bragg dropped the murder charge amid intense public pressure.
