Naked rape suspect arrested near Houston middle school

A naked man was arrested near a Houston, Texas middle school on Thursday after he allegedly hid from Houston police conducting a rape investigation.

At about 4:30 a.m. on March 2, police responded to a call for a sexual assault in progress near the school, Houston police spokesman John Cannon said.

The suspect apparently ran from the apartment after the 9-1-1 call. According to reports from the scene, the female victim was assaulted in front of her two children.

A witness told police a naked man was seen running through a field, Cannon said.

Police located the suspect at about 6 a.m. hiding under a vehicle. It was unclear whether the arrest occurred at the same address as the alleged sexual assault.

Cannon said no other information is available at this time.
