Fugitive Max Wilson arrested

Armed robber, who terrorised Honiton family, will now start 14-year jail sentence.

The hunt for fugitive Max Wilson is over, police have revealed today.

Armed robber Wilson, 24, was arrested yesterday in Merseyside following a manhunt spanning months.

He was sentenced in his absence in April to 14 years in prison following a terrifying attack on a Honiton family in their own home.

Wilson was one of two masked men to attack the Taylor family at their house in Rowcroft Close during an attempted robbery.

A handgun and a pointed instrument were used during the attack, which left Gary Taylor with multiple minor stab wounds.
