MIAMI (AP) — A convicted felon who was recently released from prison hid under a woman's bed after she let him into her house by mistake while police were searching for him.

The unlikely turn of events happened Thursday in Miami following a high-speed pursuit. It began when police started chasing a vehicle that matched the description of a car that had been involved in a robbery. The suspect crashed into several vehicles before fleeing on foot.

The Miami Herald reports he knocked on the back door of a house. A woman let him in, thinking it was her daughter's father.

They called police even though he begged them not to. Police searched the house but didn't find him. That's when the daughter looked under her mother's bed and found him hiding.
