ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. -- The man who allegedly stabbed Pittsburgh Steeler, Mike Adams, has been captured along with his girlfriend, Precious Gethers, in Alachua County, according the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.

Jerrell Remero Whitlock, 26, was wanted in connection with an assault that occurred in the Southside area of Pittsburgh, PA.

Officials believed that Whitlock fled to the Columbia County area, according to a release from the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.

Whitlock is accused of stabbing Pittsburgh Steeler Mike Adams while attempting to carjack him last week in Pittsburgh, PA, according to the CCSO. During the assault, Adams was allegedly stabbed twice in the stomach by Whitlock.

Whitlock was also wanted for allegedly violating the conditions of his probation on a 2006 conviction for firearms not to be carried without a license, the CCSO added. 

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office would like to thank everyone for their assistance in the capture of Whitlock.
