Escapee calls deputies to come arrest him

HOUSTON The suspect was detained in the 1700 block of FM 1960 shortly before noon Thursday for questioning about a robbery earlier in the week. But as he was getting ready to be transported to the HCSO Cypresswood Substation at 6831 Cypresswood, the handcuffed suspect ran away.

Deputies set up a perimeter around the Wimbledon Estates neighborhood but couldn't find the man.

But on Friday, the suspect called the Harris County Sheriff's Office and asked for deputies to come get him. He was arrested around 6pm Friday and is now facing a felony escape, even though he'd been wanted only for questioning before.

The suspect was arrested in the same area from which he escaped.
