Riverside Police Asking for Help to Identify Hit and Run Suspect

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – The Riverside Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a hit and run suspect.

On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at around 3:45 p.m. the suspect exited the 60/215 freeway near the Eastside neighborhood of Riverside. “The suspect vehicle exited the freeway at Blaine at a high rate of speed, crossing all lanes, where it collided with a van on the opposite corner, knocking the van onto the sidewalk where several teens were walking,” Riverside Police officials said. “It is thought the van may have struck at least one of the teens, but the teens left before police arrived.”

 

The suspect took his dog out of the vehicle and fled the scene on foot. Several people in the area recorded the incident with their phones until the suspect ran and jumped over a fence into an apartment complex.

The suspect is an African-American male in his 20’s, with a short afro style haircut. He was wearing a blue shirt, blue pants, and black shoes. The vehicle he was driving belonged to a 3rd party who had not given permission to him to drive.

 

Anyone with information, video or photographs of this incident is encouraged to call Riverside Police Detective Brian Jones at 951-826-8722 or bjones@riversideca.gov. Those wishing to remain anonymous can email rpdtips@riversideca.gov or utilize the Riverside Police Department’s mobile app “Submit a Tip” feature. Please refer this incident number of 190014271.
