AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) — An Aurora man has been arrested in connection to a hit-and-run collision which took place on April 5. Oghaleoghene Atuno, 21, was arrested on suspicion of using his vehicle to run over two boys, ages 11 and 12.

Law enforcement said security footage from the area showed Atuno circling the cul-de-sac several times before allegedly hitting the boys. The boys were walking on the sidewalk.

State Patrol used surveillance video from homes and schools to identify the vehicle in the incident. After the image was released to the public, someone reported a similar vehicle at an apartment complex.

The vehicle matched the description, and belonged to Atuno’s mother, an arrest affidavit said.

When law enforcement questioned Atuno, he confessed to the hit-and-run, according to the affidavit. When asked why he left the scene, law enforcement said Atuno claimed to be scared.

A motive for the incident was not released, or identified by law enforcement in their report.

Atuno faces felony charges of vehicular assault and leaving the scene, and is being held at the Arapahoe County Jail on a $250,000 bond. State patrol said Atuno could face more charges as the investigation continues.

  1. Why isn’t he being charged with a hate crime?

  2. Edgar Allan says:

    Hate crimes are only used one-way. White lives don’t matter

    Another day, another black on white hate crime.

    F___ N______

  5. Sean Smith says:

    Gee, what could possibly be his motivation? Well, he hasn’t told us so I guess we’ll never know. Typically, the media will speculate in cases like this. I guess something must be different in this case.

  6. Buddy Burke says:

    Not difficult to see why black liberals are such a major part of the anti-gun crusade. Because nobody is more likely to look down a barrel one day….

  7. I almost moved to Colorado 8 years ago but saw what a liberal turd hole it was becoming and chose elsewhere. It s very sad how a group of left wing idiots can ruin a place so fast. Sanctuary my butt

  8. Jeff Hall says:

    You (whites) are now the low tier class thanks to the demorats and their media henchmen. Better arm up and protect yourselves.

  9. “Atuno claimed to be scared”

    I wonder what those two children felt when they were being run down.

    Hopefully this attempted murderer will feel a lot of things…in certain areas of his body…while he is serving time for his crimes.

  10. My Jewish government and media never makes blacks pay for hate crimes
