America's Most Wanted Anthony Flye
Cops throughout the Northeast are pulling out all the stops to try and track down an accused child rapist -- who is also accused of brutally assaulting an elderly disabled woman.
Anthony Flye has proven to be a tough man to incarcerate. On March 26, 2008, cops were transporting him to a courtroom so he could be arraigned on charges of viciously raping a teenage relative and assaulting a 60-year-old woman. Cops say while Flye was handcuffed and walking to court, he tried jumping head first from a stairwell, almost a story high. His goal: to gain freedom without facing justice. Flye suffered a back injury and a cut on his forehead, but didn't get away.
