Full story below…
Charles Polevich, 71, turned himself in to police on February 17, Nassau County Police announced during a news conference.
Robert Maraj was walking northbound on Roslyn Road in Mineola, Long Island at 6:15 p.m on Friday (February 12), when he was struck by a 1992 white Volvo station wagon. At first, Polevich stopped. However, he then continued going.
Maraj was taken to the hospital before he succumbed to his injuries on February 13.
Police tracked the vehicle that struck him using “pieces of video.” Polevich has now been charged with leaving the scene of an auto accident and tampering with evidence.
Detective Steven Fitzpatrick said:
“He was absolutely aware of what happened. He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased, got into his car, and made the conscious decision to leave instead of dialing 911, instead of calling an ambulance for the man. He went home and secluded the vehicle. He’s well aware of what he did.”
Minaj has not yet publicly commented on her father’s death.
