Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Police announced Thursday an arrest in a hit-and-run in the Chollas View neighborhood nearly two weeks ago that left a woman seriously injured, crediting an anonymous tip provided to Crime Stoppers San Diego with cracking the case. 

The 63-year-old pedestrian was struck about 1:30 a.m. Sept. 23 while crossing 47th Street in the 400 block. Traffic investigators released security footage of the collision on Oct. 1, resulting the same day in a tip that led them to an address on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, where they located the suspected hit-and-run vehicle and arrested Ely Delacruz Soriano Jr., according to Sgt. Victoria Houseman of the San Diego Police Department.
