Rocky Mount police are hoping to run down leads on another pair of hit-and-run cases that happened Tuesday only hours apart from each other, each involving a Ford Fusion.

Police responded to a report of a hit-and-run Tuesday at 2:23 p.m. at a business on the 1500 block of Benvenue Road. Officers said the victim was inside the store, shopping when her vehicle, a 2016 Ford Fusion, was struck by another vehicle, causing $1,000 damage.

Another hit-and-run case was reported later that evening. Officers responded to the case at 7:08 p.m. at a business on the 3600 block of Sunset Avenue. The victim told police that his car, a 2012 Ford Fusion, had been struck by another vehicle but no vehicle description was available. The car’s damage was estimated at $300. 

Anyone with information about either case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov. Text a tip to police at 274637 by beginning messages with RMPOL to direct the tip to the Rocky Mount Police Department and type up to 155 characters about the information.
