Johnathan Castaneda is on the run.
A man will likely face murder charges in a bizarre incident that began with a fight over keys and ended with a death, a sexual assault and two other assaults, police say.

Johnathan Renard Castaneda, 25, is on the run after the incident in the 5200 block of Van Fleet.

Baron Keith Armstrong, 45, is dead as a result of Castaneda's assault, HPD says.

A man and two other women were beaten, and one of the women was raped by Castaneda, they say. They are hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

HPD answered an assault-in-progress call and found Armstrong dead and the others injured.

"All four were assaulted by one suspect, whom they were socializing with when the incident began," HPD says. "Armstrong was looking for his keys and began to ask the others on the whereabouts of the keys. An argument started and the suspect attacked Armstrong and beat him unconscious."

He was truly angered, HPD says: "The suspect then turned his anger on the other victims, beat them unconscious and then further assaulted Armstrong with household objects."

He fled shortly before police arrived. The female victims positively identified him to cops.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of suspect Johnathan Castaneda is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Update: Castaneda has been arrested by members of the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force and charged with murder. He also apparently has a new haircut.

Too bad they didn't shoot him. Waiting for the police to arrive can cost you your life.
