An es­caped rob­bery convict was cap­tured this week on the city’s West Side.

Stamford po­lice say they re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that Christo­pher Wil­liams, 22, had es­caped from a state De­part­ment of Cor­rec­tion halfway house and was hid­ing on Myano Lane.

Lt. Michael Noto said of­fi­cers sur­rounded the home and a woman who lived there claimed Wil­liams was not in­side. How­ever, as of­fi­cers were talk­ing to her, Noto said Wil­liams tried to es­cape from the back of the house.

Noto said of­fi­cers were wait­ing and took Wil­liams in cus­tody after a brief strug­gle.

Wil­liams was charged with re­sist­ing ar­rest and re­leased to the cus­tody of state po­lice to be re­manded back to cus­tody of the De­part­ment of Cor­rec­tion.

Wil­liams pleaded guilty in Novem­ber 2015 to an armed rob­bery in Stamford. He was sen­tenced to three and a half years in prison, fol­lowed by five years of pro­ba­tion, court and news­pa­per records show.
