A man jailed in New York City is the suspect wanted in a carjacking, murder and rape. Twenty-six-year-old Omar Sharif Cash of Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood has been positively identified by authorities in New York City.

Cash allegedly carjacked a couple in Philadelphia, shot and killed the man in Bensalem, and drove to a motel in Lawrenceville, New Jersey where police say he raped the woman repeatedly.

Police say 32-year-old Mexican immigrant Edgar Rosas-Gutierrez and his girlfriend were kidnapped around 3:30 Sunday morning, as they left Jalapeno Joes on Castor Avenue.

Bucks County and Philadelphia authorities are working on extraditing Cash back to our area. Police have not yet said how or why cash was arrested in New York.
