Deputies arrived quickly and located an injured pedestrian and the abandoned suspect vehicle.

Witnesses reported the suspects completed a beer run and, during their getaway, lost control of their vehicle and hit the pedestrian. Three suspects fled on foot into the residential neighborhood. An extensive search, which included Sheriff’s Aviation resources, resulted in the apprehension of two of the three suspects.

The driver, 19-year-old Neftali Larios of Moreno Valley, was arrested on charges of felony hit-and-run and driving under the influence. A passenger, Jose Rios, a 20-year-old Moreno Valley resident, was arrested on outstanding warrants. Both were booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center. The outstanding suspect who completed the beer run remains at large. He is described as a Hispanic 19-year-old male, last seen in a purple shirt, blue jeans, and white shoes.

This is an ongoing investigation. Investigators are seeking additional witnesses to this incident. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Leal at the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station (951) 486-6700.
