AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania police chief says officers found a man trying to flee assault charges because he posted a selfie on Facebook while sitting on a Greyhound bus out of town.

Ambridge Chief James Mann tells the Beaver County Times that 22-year-old Donald Harrison was wanted on charges he assaulted a woman and wouldn’t let her leave her apartment after an argument Jan. 24.

An hour after the woman called police, Harrison posted the Facebook message, “IT’S TIME TO LEAVE PA.”

Police couldn’t find him right away, but officers noticed the Facebook selfie Sunday with the message saying he was headed to South Carolina, where he’s from. Police had him arrested when the bus stopped in Youngtown, Ohio.

The chief says, “We like it when dumb criminals assist us.”
