The Sheriff's Department has asked for the public's help in identifying the suspect in a hit-and-run in Santee that injured a bicyclist last week.

An 18-year-old male was riding his bike northbound on Cuyamaca Street, just north of Town Center Parkway, when he was struck from behind by a  blue Hyundai, of an unknown model, on Jan. 24 around 8 p.m.

The suspect's vehicle immediately fled, making no attempt to check on the injured male, according to William Price, Traffic Investigator with the Santee Station. The victim was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Price said he has a sneaking suspicion that the suspect lives in Santee.

Price said they're looking for a newer model blue Hyundai, missing its passenger side mirror and possibly pieces of its fender. 

If you have information that could help solve this case contact Traffic Investigator William Price at William.Price@sdsheriff.org.

Vehicle damage information like this should go out out to all of the body shops in the city. Someone should start an "Amber Alert" of sorts that all auto repair shops subscribe to, for a possible future police investigation when they try to bring their car in to be fixed.
