A Pennsylvania man, who allegedly raped four-year-old twins, spit on reporters as he was booked into jail after being captured in Yonkers.
Isaiah Metz, 22, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was taken into custody by a fugitive task force in Yonkers, a New York City suburb, on Tuesday around 11pm. He escaped arrest earlier that day at Antonio Olivieri homeless shelter in Midtown Manhattan in the early morning hours. He allegedly punched and bit two officers when they tried to arrest him around 4.30am.
Authorities reportedly subdued him with a stun gun late Tuesday, sources told the New York Post, and he was taken to a hospital before being transferred to the Midtown South Precinct, where he was charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, and criminal trespassing.
The 22-year-old also has 115 charges pending against him in York County, Pennsylvania, including three counts of raping a minor and 99 counts of sexual abuse involving pictures and videos. He faces up to a 1,000 years in prison if convicted on all 115 counts, according to Local 12 News.
On Wednesday, the alleged sex offender was escorted out of the Midtown precinct by police wearing nothing but red and black pajamas bottoms, a black camouflaged zip-up jacket, and black socks, but no shoes.
The dyed-red haired young man smiled and made funny faces, even appearing to blow a kiss at the cameras as he was escorted toward a waiting police car. As he was walked into Central Booking in downtown Manhattan, he spit on reporters.

The NYPD received a tip that Metz was staying at the Antonio Olivieri homeless shelter – located on W 30th Street near Eighth Avenue in Midtown, Manhattan on Tuesday morning.
An officer and a state trooper arrived at the shelter around 4.30am on Tuesday with a warrant when a fight broke out and Metz bit a trooper’s arm and punched another officer before managing to get away.
Both officers were transported to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries and have since been released and reportedly assisted in his arrest late Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News.
Metz reportedly took off running uptown and allegedly went into a subway station, according to Pix 11. Police dogs managed to track his scent to W 32nd Street and Seventh Avenue, according to the New York Daily News.

Metz has been accused of raping four-year-old twins he lived with after being adopted into a foster family, the New York Post reported.
He was reportedly watching one of the girls on July 24, 2021, while the other sister went to a doctor’s appointment, according to an affidavit, viewed by Penn Live.
The family reported the daughter was more emotional when they returned home and allegedly told them during bath time that her vagina hurt, court documents said.

Police reportedly collected DNA samples from her underwear, as well as the recliner the assault happened on. Investigators were not able to rule out that the DNA belonged to Metz, Penn Live reported.
It was later discovered by the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children that Metz had posted 42 photos and eight videos of himself sexually abusing the girls, all of which were found on his phone in February, the affidavit said.
