The Makati City police are asking for the public’s help in search of a sports utility vehicle that hit and killed a six-year-old boy in Makati City over the weekend.
The victim has been identified as Merlin Cisnero Jr., a resident of Filmore St., Brgy, Palanan, Makati City.
Based on the records of the Makati City Traffic Bureau, the incident happened on Friday near the victim’s residence but was only reported to authorities on Monday night.
It was learned that the victim was playing and running around the area with some of his friends.
The SUV traversed the area, hit the boy crossing the street and dragged the boy.
Instead of pulling over to help the boy, the SUV sped off, leaving his victim behind. (Anna Liza Villas-Alavaren)
