A Pasadena man could soon face upgraded charges after police say he ran over a little girl and left the scene of a domestic squabble. That little girl has died.
The man is identified as 31 year old Luis Alonzo Aguilar. Police say he hit a 5 year old little girl Sunday night in Pasadena.
Investigators say Aguilar, the boyfriend of the five year old’s mother, got into argument with the girls biological father. But police say Aguilar fled the scene to avoid a physical altercation with his girlfriend’s ex-husband.
When Aguilar pulled off from the Pasadena home he ran over the child who died today.
Assistant Police Chief Bud Corbett says Aguilar knew he hit the girl and still refused to stop and render aid. The 31-year-old was caught by police a few hours later.
He was found sitting in the parking lot of a grocery store in Pasadena. Aguilar is being held in the Pasadena Jail until he’s officially charged and then transferred to the Harris County jail.
The father of the little girl declined to comment on Sunday night’s incident. The child’s name has not been released by police.
