MARLBORO, MASS. (WHDH) –  Marlboro police are turning to the public for help as they search for a drive who struck a juvenile riding a bike on Sunday and then fled the scene.

Police have released photos of what is believed to be a gray or light green SUV, possibly a Toyota Highlander, that left the scene after hitting the bicyclist.

The vehicle left the scene westbound on Boston Post Road and took a right turn into the rear entrance of Ghiloni Park at about 11:45 a.m.

A friend of the young victim who spoke to 7NEWS urged the driver responsible to turn themselves in.

“If they do I will be happy,” he said. “If they don’t I’m going to be angry, mad, and sad.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Marlboro Police Det. Richardson at 508-485-1212 ext. 36946.

No additional information was immediately available.
