Hostage situation leads to chase, manhunt in SE Houston, police say
HOUSTON – Houston police searched a southeast Houston neighborhood Monday, looking for a man they said was involved in a hostage situation and chase.
Around 6:40 p.m., police said a woman called police saying her son was being held hostage and that the men holding him were asking for money.
When officers arrived at a fast-food restaurant near the intersection of Cullen Boulevard and Beltway 8, police said the suspects left the scene in a vehicle, prompting a high-speed chase through southeast Houston.
The vehicle chase came to an end near the 5700 block of Groveton Street when the suspects bailed out of the vehicle, according to police.
A woman, who was driving, and a man, who was a passenger, were both taken into custody, but police said they were searching for a third suspect.
Police said the victim was either pushed out, or jumped out, of the vehicle near the end of the pursuit. Police said he did not suffer any injuries.
