Police have applied for an arrest warrant in the hit-and-run that killed a Danbury police officer.
Donald Hassiak II, of New Milford, was riding his bicycle to work at 10:30 p.m. on June 3 when he was struck. The driver fled, police said, but police have had a person of interest and the vehicle they believe was involved.
"We want to make sure that when the case moves forward, we have everything we need," Capt. Michael Mrazik, a spokesman for the New Milford Police Department, told the News-Times. "We are dotting the I's and crossing the T's."
Hassiak leaves his wife, Kim, and their three sons, Matthew, 8, Luke, 6, and Donald Jr., 4.
A memorial fund has been set up Hassiak’s wife and children.
