EDMONTON – Edmonton police say a 28-year-old man has turned himself into police following a hit and run in downtown Edmonton in July.

Investigators were searching for a male suspect following the hit and run, which happened in the early morning hours of July 20 in the area of 100 Avenue and 117 Street.

They say the suspect was seen entering Steamworks Bathhouse around 2 a.m. and leaving just before 4:30 a.m., when he got into a BMW X6, which was parked at the back of the Jewish Seniors Centre.

It was reported that the suspect drove forward, and his vehicle pushed and dragged a man who was sleeping on the ground. Police say the suspect vehicle then left the scene.

The victim sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

On Wednesday, Edmonton police released several photos of the suspect. Police say the suspect turned himself into police Friday.

Tam Van Ho has since been charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
