Police seek suspect in Wilmington hit-and-run

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Detectives with the Wilmington Police Department are asking for the public's help to identify a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run in downtown Wilmington last month.

The incident happened around 10:40 a.m. on March 25 at the intersection of Second and Dock streets.

Police say a gray Jeep Cherokee struck a silver BMW — which had an infant in the back seat — in the rear causing significant damage to the car. The suspect then made a gesture toward the victims before taking off towards Third Street.

Police say the Jeep was a "primer" gray with large tires, tinted windows, and a 30-day tag.

If you have any information, please contact the Wilmington Police Department at 343-3609 or send an anonymous tip to Text-A-Tip by texting "CRIMES" and starting the text with "Tip708."
