HOUSTON — Houston police say they believe a man was high on some kind of drugs when he attacked two women, then got into an argument with a group of men before he died.

Police say the confrontations occurred Saturday night outside a gas station.

One of the two women assaulted had to be taken to a hospital.

Investigators tell Houston TV station KTRK that when the man began arguing with the men and tried to attack one of them, he was held down and stopped breathing. Those men are being sought.

The man’s name hasn’t been released and no cause of death has been immediately disclosed.
