NORTHGLENN, Colo. — An arrest has been made in connection with a hit-and-run in Northglenn that injured a couple and their dog earlier this month, Northglenn Police (NPD) said in a tweet Friday morning.

Andrew Paul Duran II, 30, turned himself into police on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for NPD. 

Officers were called to a residential area near West 104th Avenue and North Pecos Street around 3 a.m. on Aug. 10 for a welfare check after receiving a report that someone was screaming.

A couple told officers they were walking their dog when someone ran a stop sign and hit them and their dog before taking off. 

The man and woman had minor injuries, but the dog was seriously hurt, police said.
