MOBILE, Alabama -- More than 18 years after a woman was kidnapped, raped and robbed in west Mobile, police say a man has been connected to the crime and was arrested this week in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. 

The arrest came after a Mobile police lieutenant began looking at the case again about 11 months ago, Mobile police spokesman Officer Christopher Levy said. 

Willie Kevin Williams, 42, remained in the Okaloosa County, Fla., jail in Crestview tonight, awaiting extradition to Mobile to face charges of first-degree rape, first-degree robbery and second-degree kidnapping, Sgt. Tom Matz of the Fort Walton Beach police said. 

Matz said Williams was captured after a brief foot chase in downtown Fort Walton Beach late Tuesday evening. 

According to Matz, Williams had been living in Navarre, about 15 miles west of Fort Walton Beach in Santa Rosa County. 

Williams is accused in connection with an incident that took place in February 1993 in west Mobile, Levy said. 

According to Levy, a woman was raped, robbed and kidnapped after her car broke down. Levy said the victim submitted physical evidence for a rape kit, and fingerprints were taken from the car, but at the time police were unable to match the evidence to anyone. 

It was in August 2010 that Lt. Joseph Rose of the police identification division took a new look at the file, according to Levy. He said Rose regularly pulls old cases in hopes of matching evidence and new technology to unsolved cases.
