Central District Major Crime Squad Detectives are continuing to follow up on leads pertaining to this incident. The investigation is ongoing.

“It’s always dark in some areas because there’s not a lot of lighting, so yeah, it’s a pretty big worry,” said Joseph Tharpe.

“With a bike and a child, you would hope they would have stopped,” TFC Muniz said.
