HOUSTON -

A man, who police said was one of seven men who tried to flee from an officer, has been arrested.

Jose Garcia-Reyes has been charged with evading arrest.

Houston police said an officer spotted a stolen car that was parked in the 190 block of Goodson in north Houston on Monday.

Seven men were inside the car, investigators said. When the officer told them to get out of the car, some of the men fled. The officer told the remaining men to stay at the car while he went after the others suspects.  When he came back to the car, none of the men were there.

The officer returned to his patrol car and as he was writing his report, one of the suspects, Garcia-Reyes, returned to the scene. Garcia-Reyes was then arrested.
