A TEENAGER who taunted police on Facebook and dared them to ‘catch me if you can’ has been arrested.

Cheshire Police had issued a plea for help from members of the public over the whereabouts of Declan Taylor, who was jailed earlier this year after threatening to ‘cut a woman up’ with a combat knife after breaking into a house in Howley.

Instead, the 19-year-old taunted officers in comments on the Warrington Guardian’s Facebook page – daring them to ‘catch me if you can’ before comparing himself to Robin Hood.

But Taylor, of no fixed address but previously of Marsh House Lane, was arrested by police last night, Monday – having been wanted on recall to prison for around a month.

He was initially spared prison following the incident on St Elphin’s Close in February.

The teen smashed a window to gain entry to the property and shouted: “I want all of your money.”

Taylor then brandished a large combat knife and told a woman: “Come with me or I will cut you up.”

Having been originally been handed a suspended sentence for affray, possession of a bladed article and criminal damage, he breached this court order when he attacked two men outside Voodoo nightclub on Friars Gate in the town centre in March.

And Taylor was then handed 13 months in jail at Liverpool Crown Court.

He has been returned to prison after his latest arrest.
