HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A man accused of kidnapping a mother and tying up her son in north Harris County has been arrested after being on the run for days.

Wiltz, 56, is accused of tying up a child and then kidnapping the boy's mother on Nov. 30. The victim, who was not identified out of fear for her son's safety, said she dated the suspect for two years but broke up over the summer.
The woman said that on the day of the incident, Wiltz broke into her home, and when she walked in, he came up from behind her with a knife. He then forced her 14-year-old son into a closet and duct-taped him.
The woman said Wiltz drove her to the 500 block of FM 1960, where she was able to escape in the Humble area.
Wiltz faces two charges of aggravated kidnapping.
