Serial Subway Mugger Busted: Cops
A man wanted in connection with more than 15 subway robberies has been caught red handed, police said last night.
Authorities in Rocky Mount, NC, arrested Rasheem Williams, 37, allegedly as he was stealing.
Known as the "Red Sox Bandit," Williams wore a Boston Red Sox cap while wielding a knife and preying mostly on young, female subway riders on the Upper West Side, the Bronx and Brooklyn.
His mugging spree spanned from January until August, when he went on the lam.
Williams, who was on the Top Most Wanted Fugitive list posted online by Crime Stoppers, has a criminal record dating back 20 years, authorities said
