Police arrested a suspect in a hit-and-run Tuesday after the man fled the scene and tried to hide in Winton-Scott Hall, said Lisa Albert, TCU’s director of strategic communications.
The accident happened at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Berry Street, according to an email sent out to TCU students, faculty and staff. The suspect left his vehicle and ran toward campus, entering Winton-Scott Hall.
TCU police secured the exits of Winton-Scott, and after they learned the suspect may have been involved in a burglary in a nearby neighborhood, they alerted Fort Worth police. The suspect took items from Winton-Scott in an effort to camouflage himself but was arrested as he left the building, Albert wrote.
Further details surrounding the suspect have not yet been released.
