A MAN who was unlawfully at large from prison was arrested after jumping from a window as he tried to flee from police.
He had been released from Maghaberry, but the terms of his licence were broken, police said.
The 32-year-old was in a house at Callan Street in Armagh when officers arrived to arrest him for a string of alleged offences.
As police entered the building he leaped from a first floor window and made off on foot. Officers pursued him for around 15 minutes before he was caught. He was arrested on suspicion of burglary, making off without paying from a service station in Lurgan, and dangerous driving in Armagh. He is alleged to have carried out the offences last June.
He was being held yesterday for questioning.
