A suspect in a hit-and-run crash that killed Nicki Minaj’s father Robert Maraj turned himself in to the police and was arrested Wednesday morning.
Maraj, 64, was killed on Friday in Mineola, Long Island, after he was struck by a car heading northbound on Roslyn Road at the intersection with Raff Avenue, authorities said.
The Nassau County Police Department announced the arrest of 70-year-old Charles Polevich during a morning press conference.
Polevich surrendered to police after officers tracked him down to his home in Mineola and found his damaged car in the garage.
Detective Lt Stephen Fitzpatrick told reporters that Polveich was driving his 1992 white Volvo station wagon northbound on Roslyn Road when he struck Maraj, who was walking in the road.
