Virginia Beach, Va. - The U.S. Marshals say they captured Christopher Troy Goode, an attempted murder suspect, in Virginia Beach on Thursday morning.

The U.S. Marshals worked with the Baltimore City Police, Howard County Police, Virginia Beach Police, and the Maryland State Police on this case.

Goode was wanted for attempted murder and domestic violence charges related to a stabbing in Baltimore that occurred on September 12th. He is accused of stabbing the mother of his children 10 times and gutting her with a knife.

Goode is also wanted in connection to an incident in Ohio.

Baltimore police had warrants for his arrest on September 30 and they say Goode and an associate had been on the run since the information and BOLOs were distributed in Virginia.

Police say this is not Goode's first brush with the law. They say he has a long criminal history that includes possession of guns, knives and drugs. Authorities have tried to capture Goode previously, but he led police on foot or vehicle pursuits.

Police say they received information that Goode and an accomplice may have been staying at the Sandpiper Inn on Pacific Avenue. They found the vehicle Goode was driving in the parking lot of the Inn. Police say they saw Goode and his associate leaving the room to get into the vehicle. When authorities tried to make the arrest, they say Goode got out of the car and ran away leading them on a chase. He was eventually captured.

He is now waiting for extradition back to Baltimore.
