    A fugitive featured on "America's Most Wanted" was caught after a foot chase in Lauderhill, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

    Jail records show 27-year-old Amos Isaac remained at the Broward County Jail Saturday without bond.  He faces a charge of attempted felony murder. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.

    A sheriff's office press release says Isaac was wanted for nearly beating a 20-year-old woman to death with a shovel on Jan. 10. He eluded authorities for months until investigators received information that he was in the Lauderhill area of NW 19th Street and State Road 7.

    Authorities watched him walk into a Wendy's restaurant and when they went inside, Isaac ran out the opposite door and headed into the Sandalgrove apartment complex, the sheriff's office said.

    The Fugitive Squad chased him and he was nabbed on the second floor stairwell in the 4600 block of NW 19th Street.

    The TV show featured the attack earlier this year.
