29-year-old Victor Burgos still had his Facebook page open when a task force of U.S. marshals and NYPD detectives arrived at his Brooklyn apartment. The man was placed under arrest and taken to Oneida County where he is facing charges related to domestic violence and harassment of his ex-girlfriend.
Before his arrest, Burgos posted messages via Facebook such as “Catch me if you can, I’m in Brooklyn,” and he even posted a video of him walking into an unidentified NYPD stationhouse.
There’s no explanation as to what Burgos’ motivation was and whether he genuinely believed that he could continue with his online antics without getting caught eventually. All Utica police sergeant Steve Hauck had to say about the incident is that “He told us via Facebook to come and get him and we did.”
