VISTA (CNS) - Arraignment of a 19-year-old San Diego man arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run in the death of a bicycle rider in Rancho Santa Fe was postponed Tuesday.
Jin Hyuk Byun was arrested Sunday night in the death of 18-year-old Angel Bojorquez of Escondido, who died Friday.
Byun's arraignment scheduled for Tuesday morning was postponed until Wednesday, Tanya Sierra of the District Attorney's Office said.
Bojorquez, an Albertsons clerk, was found dead in shrubbery along a winding stretch of Via De La Valle about 2 a.m. Friday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office. He apparently was riding his mountain bike home from his job in Del Mar.
Bojorquez was going north, south of Paseo Delicias, when a northbound vehicle struck him about an hour before his body was discovered, California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parent said.
A neighbor of Byun's saw damage to his black 2008 Chevy Avalanche on Sunday and reported it in response to the CHP asking for the public's help in finding the hit-and-run driver, Parent said.
Bojorquez's bike had no light on it, but he was wearing a reflective vest, according to the CH. He was single and lived in Escondido with an older brother, and an aunt and uncle.
His brother, Steve, said they both worked at the same Albertsons and often drove together, but their schedules did not match up Friday. He pedaled the 20 or so miles home from work only a few times, the brother said.
