Neighbors Help Police Search for Hit-and-Run Suspect

Neighbors emerged from their North Park homes Monday night to help San Diego police search for a hit-and-run suspect.

The man, a suspected DUI driver, originally crashed into a parked car in the 3000 block of Landis Street at about 9:25 p.m. and took off.

He ran to the 3800 block of 31st Street, where residents joined the search when they heard the SDPD commotion.

Officers called in air support to help find the suspect, and the helicopter's heat source detected him hiding under a car in an alley. 

He was arrested just after 10 p.m.
