The alleged perpetrator of the attack on a minor last Sunday in Valencia turned himself in at the Local Police headquarters this Thursday, as confirmed by sources from this body on social networks. The driver of the vehicle that ran over an 8-year-old child on the Ronda Norte in Valencia and fled has been arrested and transferred to the Central Guard Inspection. The mayor of València, María José Catalá, has also confirmed the information and has thanked both the work of the local agents and the citizen participation that she, she explained, has helped in the location.

The detainee is a 22-year-old man, with a criminal record and requirements for other matters.

The events occurred last Sunday in the capital of Túria, when the driver of a BMW fled after running over and seriously injuring an eight-year-old boy who was crossing a pedestrian crossing on Hermanos Machado Avenue with Moncada Road, next to a familiar.

Although the vehicle had already been located and immobilized in a municipality in the province of Valencia far from the capital and the driver identified, after four days of searching it had not been possible to locate him. And a call had been made to citizens to do so. Finally, he has turned himself in.

The child suffered head trauma, chest trauma, pelvic contusion and fracture of the femur of both legs; After initial attention at the scene by a unit of the Urgent Medical Assistance Service (SAMU), he was urgently transferred to the Clinical Hospital, where he remains hospitalized with a reserved prognosis.
