He was wanted for a horrific theft at a house in Felton Croft late on the night of 26 April.

A man in his 50s was upstairs when he heard someone forcing him in and looked out his bedroom window and saw four people at the front door.

As he got down, the man was stabbed on his knee.

Taylor and the men took off in a Volvo with several electronic items.

Police conducted a forensic examination of the home in Felton Croft the next day, and thanks to a tracking app, the man’s mobile phone was found on a nearby street.

Officers then recovered a fingerprint on the device matching Taylor’s.

Attempts were made to arrest Taylor but he fled after an appeal by the police.

This led to an anonymous call to his whereabouts – and Taylor was found by officers hiding in the loft of an address on Foliot Road.

In the video of his arrest we see an officer raising his leg through a hatch into the scaffolding.

Once inside, the officer found Taylor wearing only one black underwear in the dark.

The officer can be heard telling him: “Come to me. Keep on stepping, don’t play at all, understand?

“We’re going to take care of you but you need to play ball.”

The officer can then be heard saying to his colleague: “Well good boost, it’s all in boost. How did you get here anyway?”

The second officer replies: “I’ve been doing some pull ups, right? All in this kit too.”

Taylor pleaded guilty to felony theft and attempted burglary at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday.

He has been jailed for eight years and 10 months.
