Fugitive on the run taunts cops by commenting on his own ‘good-looking’ mugshot

A wanted man has taunted cops on social media by saying how handsome he looked in his photo.

Michael Swansborough, 31, left the comment on the Kent Police Facebook page last weekend after they posted a public appeal for information on his whereabouts.

An account bearing his name commented on the picture saying "what a handsome guy" accompanied by a laughing face emoji.

It received several hundred likes, and the chippy fugitive even took the time to like the comments of other people on the same post.

He then changed his profile picture to the Gingerbread Man in reference to the famously un-catchable character from children's nursery rhyme.

Swansborough is wanted for a parole breach related to his sentence for attempted murder.

He is being sought by police in connection with being recalled to prison after being handed an indeterminate jail term in 2009 for 8-the attempted murder of 19-year-old Lloyd Dawson-Smith.

Swansborough and accomplice Trevor Moore stabbed him in the back, shoulder and lung after tracking him down to his address following a small altercation at the end of a night out.

Then aged 19, he had drunk 25 pints of beer and cider and taken as much 2.5g of cocaine when he attempted to kill the teenager back in October 2008.

Swnasborough has also teased the officers in a recent Instagram Live stream, where he said he wanted to do a 'real-life' version of the TV show 'Hunted', according to the MailOnline.

The Channel 4 hit saw contestants go on the run and compete against each other to escape a team of private detectives.

A Kent Police spokesman said: 'Michael Swansborough is wanted in connection with being recalled to prison.

'If you know where he is, call 101 quoting 46/8715/22.

'You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or complete the online form available here.'
