A man has been arrested by Saudi police nearly 43 years after an arrest warrant was first issued against him.
The warrant was first issued against the 75-year-old man for a fatal hit and run case
The incident took place in Al Taif where the defendant ran over a man and left him for dead. The victim’s family, however, kept the case alive for decades.

This week the family finally got the call from authorities with news of the detainment.
The arrest came after police followed tips in the case and identified who the man was. The man admitted to the crime during interrogations and has now been referred to court in order to face charges in the decades-long case.
