IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

A man involved in a standoff earlier this month tried to run away from police Sunday night -- the second time he tried to run from officers in as many weeks.

Torian Cleggette was being escorted into the Johnson County Jail on Sunday night when he pulled away from the officer escorting him and ran away.

According to the criminal complaint, Cleggette hid from police for about 10 minutes before he was found and returned to jail.

Cleggette was involved in another incident in July when he tried to escape police.

After Sunday's attempt, he faces an additional charge for escape from custody and interference with official acts.
