According to officials from the Nassau County Police Department, the incident occurred between 5:45 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on the evening of Friday, February 12, 2021 near the intersection of Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue in Mineola, NY, in Nassau County just east of Queens. The father of famed hip-hop musician Nicki Minaj, a local resident 64 years of age, was walking along Roslyn Road, and police believe he was walking in the roadway due to snow piled up along the sidewalks. He was allegedly hit by a man from Guam, 70 years of age, that had been driving north on Roslyn Road in a 1992 Volvo. Police tracked a vehicle matching the description to the man’s home and found unexplained damage, allegedly tying the man to the crime.
Police say the man stopped long enough to see the victim was seriously injured or dead before fleeing instead of calling 911.
