Woman and Six Year-Old Niece Struck in Violent Holiday Hit and Run


Bridgeport Police in Connecticut need the public’s help identifying a light colored SUV which struck a 60 year-old woman and her niece on Memorial Day. According to news reports, the pair of victims were hit by a silver or white SUV while crossing the street at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Highland Street.

Spanning a one week period, BP police reports indicate that this is the second violent hit and run in the area surrounding Washington Avenue. Last Monday, a man named Alberto Rios deliberately mowed down his ex-girlfriend’s sister and her boyfriend with his car. After striking the pair, Rios exited the vehicle and pummeled the male victim, kicking and punching him repeatedly. Before cops arrived, Rios warned the victim to not “snitch,” and coerced him into telling authorities it was only an accident under threat of death. Rios was later apprehended, and reportedly had been terrorizing his ex-girlfriend’s family for months.
