After taunting police with the enticing challenge of "haha catch me if you can wont see me slipping", a teenage suspect was caught and arrested by police shortly afterwards.
Logan Rhys James was wanted by Gwent Police for breaching his licence condition after being released from jail on 6 February - he had served eight months in prison for a street knife attack.
After he failed to maintain contact with police on his release the teenager was recalled to prison. The police force therefore posted a message on its Facebook wall appealing for information from the public.
The 19-year-old, who told a local news agency that it would take "at least a month or two before they [the police] get me", was arrested within 48 hours of his taunt.
Police said he was arrested in Caerphilly on Sunday at 5.50pm and was being held in police custody.
