A fugitive who taunted police on his Facebook page to "catch me if you can. I'm in Brooklyn" has been arrested.

The Daily News in New York reports that US marshals and New York Police Department detectives tracked Victor Burgos down to an apartment in a neighbourhood of Brooklyn, a borough of New York City, where they found him sitting at his computer with his Facebook page open.

The 29-year-old suspect was wanted by police in upstate New York on multiple arrest warrants for domestic violence and harassment of his former girlfriend.

He allegedly issued the Facebook challenge after his mugshot appeared on the Utica Police Department's 10 most wanted list.

Utica Sergeant Steve Hauck told the News: "He told us via Facebook to come and get him and we did."
