A man on the police wanted list have been arrested after he posted a selfie on Facebook a in a Greyhound bus when he was about to leave town.

The Ambridge police Chief James Mann said "We like it when dumb criminals assist us in our investigation."

Mann told The Associated Press that the suspect, 22-year-old Donald Harrison, had been living in the borough about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh when he was charged with assaulting a woman and refusing to let her leave her apartment after an argument on Jan. 24.

An hour after the woman called police, police learned that Harrison, who is originally from Spartansburg, South Carolina, posted the Facebook message, "IT'S TIME TO LEAVE PA."

Police couldn't find him right away, but Mann said the woman called him Sunday afternoon after she noticed the Facebook selfie with the message saying, "OMW TO SPARTANSBURG SC SAY A PRAYER FOR ME."

Mann said the picture appeared to show Harrison sitting in a bus or airplane and, acting on a hunch, he called the Greyhound bus terminal in Pittsburgh and learned a bus to Spartansburg had left 15 minutes earlier. After learning it would stop in Youngstown, Ohio, Mann explained the situation to Greyhound and arranged for Youngstown police to arrest Harrison on a warrant he faxed them.

"I guess when the bus pulled in, they instructed the driver to keep the door shut until police got there, and the rest is history," Mann said.

He continued, “We’ve been on 'World's Dumbest Criminals' for a couple of things, but his actions certainly qualify for another episode."

Harrison body-slammed his victim several times during the 12-hour ordeal before he left, police is expected to add a charge of aggravated assault when he is deported from Ohio during week.
