SAN DIEGO, CA (June 4, 2020) – On Tuesday, a man who is suspected of deliberately driving into a pedestrian and killing him in San Diego was arrested by Mexican authorities in Tijuana. The May 28 incident occurred close to Balboa Park.

The time was roughly a little after 5:00 a.m., according to police.

The victim was pronounced deceased in the hospital. He was identified as Met Austin Simon, 32 years old.

According to Matt Dobbs, who is a lieutenant with San Diego Police, investigators at first were studying the incident as a hit-and-run crash. However, as the investigation progressed, video footage was found that appeared to show the incident was intentional, according to authorities.

The suspect in the incident was arrested in Tijuana by Mexican authorities. San Diego Police took custody after the suspect was turned over to them, according to Dobbs.
