WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - Two men were arrested Thursday afternoon at separate locations after Wichita Falls Police say they tried to flee from officers.

Authorities say the pair split up at a gas station near Harrison and Avenue E.

The passenger was wanted on several arrest warrants, according to police. Officers, who were actively looking for the passenger, identified him in the car and attempted to pull it over. He bailed from the car as the driver sped away.

The passenger was taken into custody in the 1300 block of Giddings after he was found hiding in a tool shed behind a home.

Authorities say the driver made it to his home, about a block away on Collins Street, before he was taken into custody.

Police have not released the identities of either men.
