TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
Tyler police say that a man who was on his way to turn himself in to police Thursday afternoon changed his mind and jumped out of a moving car.
Police say that shortly after 3 p.m., a woman reported that her boyfriend, Kenny Ray Hass, had jumped out of her car near the intersection of Donnybrook and Loop 323 in south Tyler while on the way to see his parole officer. She said Hass had spoken with a pastor, and had agreed that he would turn himself in on a parole violation warrant.
However, she told police that he changed his mind and jumped from her car. She called police, they told us, and reported that he had fled on foot. Police searched the area just after 3 p.m., but did not locate Hass. The active search has been discontinued, but police say if you see him, please call 903-531-1090.
Hass was featured on KLTV7 Crimefighters in 2010 for a charge of assault family violence out of Wood County.
