Most Wanted NY criminal caught in NC

The NYPD's Most Wanted Fugitive, according to the police Crimestoppers.com website, was caught in Rocky Mount NC over the weekend by New York and Rocky Mount police, and the U.S. Marshals service.

Rasheem Williams, known to the Post as the "Red Sox bandit" after the hat he was wearing for one crime, was wanted for 15 subway robberies in which he showed a knife or said he had a gun, and then demanded victims' valuables, bank cards, and PIN numbers. Williams struck one female victim in the face when she didn't cooperate.

Williams was arrested with Jamal Williams and Michael Lewis. Lewis was also wanted by New York for parole violations.
