    An arrest has been made in Friday's hit-and-run of a 72-year old woman in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

    Police announced Saturday they arrested Arnold Hernandez, 25, of Lynn, on an unrelated warrant at his workplace in Revere.

    Police said they received a tip Saturday morning that led them to a suspect vehicle on Chestnut Street in Chelsea. Through a family member, investigators were able to verify that Hernandez was operating that vehicle Friday during the hit-and-run incident at the intersection of Broadway and Fourth Street.

    The Chelsea woman who was struck suffered non life-threatening injuries.

    Hernandez has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury, operating a motor vehicle without a license and operating to endanger. He is expected to be arraigned on Monday in Chelsea District Court.
