­East Hampton Town police have arrested a South Carolina man who they say was responsible for a March 15 hit-and-run crash on North Main Street that left a pedestrian hospitalized.

According to an accident report dated April 1 and just released this week, Elsa Yugsi-Cabrera of East Hampton, 42, was left semiconscious with a bleeding cut on her head and injuries to her right arm, shoulder, neck, and back from the crash. She was taken by ambulance to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

On the evening of June 4, at a house on Indian Hill Road in East Hampton, police arrested Steven M. Glover of Bluffton, S.C., and charged him with a misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries. They allege he hit Ms. Yugsi-Cabrera with his 2021 Ford sedan, then “stopped to back up, turn around, and travel southbound to go to a grocery store” without providing his license and insurance information.

Mr. Glover, 64, was arraigned June 12 in Town Justice Court. No further information was available by press time.

A guest at the Ocean Resort Inn in Montauk went for a beach walk on June 6 and tossed his pants over his shoulder while walking, he told police. Some cards, his Airpods, and $250 fell out of a pocket, he later realized, and when he retraced his steps he found a group of youths going through his possessions. When confronted, the group fled in a car. Police located it, and after the mother of one boy arrived on the scene the man was reimbursed.
