A man suspected in several rapes and sexual assaults has been captured after a cross-country crime spree.

26-year-old Gregory Lewis was first arrested on child rape charges in Massachusetts in August.

While out on bail, police say he cut off his GPS bracelet, left it on the victim's front lawn, and fled to North Carolina, where he allegedly attacked and robbed a woman at a motel.

During his month on the run, he's also accused of sexual assaults in Ohio, Colorado, and Oregon.

He was finally caught last night in New York State during a traffic stop.
