A fugitive from New York who teased the police on his Facebook page to `catch me if you can. I’m in Brooklyn’ has been arrested.
The Daily News says U.S. marshals and NYPD detectives tracked Victor Burgos down to an apartment in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood Monday night, sitting at his computer with his Facebook page open.
The 29-year-old suspect was already wanted by Utica police for a list of arrest warrants including domestic violence and harassment.
He allegedly issued the Facebook challenge after his mug shot appeared on the Utica Police Department’s 10 most wanted list.
Utica Sgt. Steve Hauck tells the News: “He told us via Facebook to come and get him and we did.”
