ALLENTOWN, Pa. --A Lehigh Valley woman received quite a scare when she discovered a man hiding in the back seat of her car.
Twenty-two-year-old Reagan Landis says she noticed a police officer walking near her home off East Emmaus Avenue in Allentown a few weeks ago.
She thought nothing of it and jumped into her car to go to work.
Landis says a few miles into her drive, a man started talking to her from the rear of the vehicle.
"And he's just trying to make everything okay by telling me a story about how 'oh I was chased by these thugs' and 'I had to hide here,'" said Landis.
Police say 43-year-old Alan Ongiri ran from officers during a traffic stop and hid in Landis' car.
Landis convinced Ongiri to let her drop him off at the Knights Inn in Coopersburg.
Police then arrested Ongiri. He now faces multiple charges.
