The ‘dangerous’ man who has been on the run for four days has been arrested.
Mark Anthony Ainsley absconded from police custody during a visit to York Hospital at around 3.35am on Thursday (May 18).
Since then York police have mounted a major campaign to track him down. There was a heightened police presence in the Clifton area of the city, and at one stage armed officers were seen outside a house in the Huntington Road area.
On Monday afternoon North Yorkshire Police revealed he had been arrested in Harrogate.
They issued this statement:
North Yorkshire Police would like to thank the public and media for their assistance with this investigation.
