AURORA, CO (CBS 4 News) – An Aurora man has been arrested in connection to a hit-and-run collision which took place on April 5. Oghaleoghene Atuno, 21, was arrested on suspicion of using his vehicle to run over two boys, ages 11 and 12.
One boy was so badly injured, his skull was fractured.
Law enforcement said security footage from the area showed Atuno circling the cul-de-sac several times before hitting the boys. The boys were walking on the sidewalk.
State Patrol used surveillance video from homes and schools to identify the vehicle in the incident. After the image was released to the public, someone reported a similar vehicle at an apartment complex.
The vehicle matched the description, and belonged to Atuno’s mom, an arrest affidavit said.
When law enforcement questioned Atuno, he confessed to the hit-and-run, according to the affidavit. When asked why he left the scene, law enforcement said Atuno claimed to be scared.
A motive for the incident was not released, or identified by law enforcement in their report.
Atuno faces felony charges of vehicular assault and leaving the scene, and is being held at the Arapahoe County Jail on a $250,000 bond. State patrol said Atuno could face more charges as the investigation continues.
*Atuno came to this country from Uganda.
