Help catch cowardly hit-and-run suspects
Statement of Alderman Khalif J. Rainey - May 17, 2018
The community needs to come together immediately to help catch the three people who ran from a vehicle Wednesday night after hitting a pedestrian and another vehicle along W. Locust St.
The two hit-and-run incidents happened at approximately 10:30 p.m. Wednesday when a Subaru struck a 35-year-old man who was crossing the street near N. 47th and W. Locust Streets, and then proceeded west where it struck an occupied moving vehicle at N. 50th and W. Locust.
The 35-year-old pedestrian was critically injured and a woman in the vehicle that was struck was also injured.
As a community we cannot allow such reckless and criminal behavior to go unchecked, and I am calling on residents to help Milwaukee Police find the three occupants who ran from the striking vehicle. It is likely someone out there knows one of the culprits, and we need that person to do the right thing and call police.
You can remain anonymous. Call the MPD at 414-935-7360 if you know anything about the occupants who were in the vehicle.
