On Friday, the FBI announced the arrest of one of its '10 Most Wanted' fugitives.

Fidel Urbina, who was on the run for 17 years, was captured near Valle de Zaragoza, Chihuahua, Mexico on Thursday by PFM (Policía Federal Ministerial) Interpol.

Urbina was allegedly involved in two assaults that occurred in Chicago in the late 1990s.

He was arrested in spring of 1998 and charged with the kidnapping, beating, and raping of a woman.

Urbina was released on bond, and, according to authorities, soon after fatally attacked another woman.

Her body was found in the trunk of a car that had been set on fire.

Police attempted to find and arrest him, but could not.

In response to the recent news that Urbina has been apprehended, Eddie Johnson, Chicago Police Superintendent, thanked the FBI forcapturing the man, "...whose merciless actions against innocent victims robbed one family of a daughter and left a permanent scar on a woman fortunate enough to survive his attack."
