BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – A Titusville man was arrested when an anonymous tip helped police find the suspect after he left a hit-and-run crash involving a bicyclist and another vehicle on September 12 near the entrance of Cumberland Farms convenience store in Titusville.

Police have identified the suspect as 34-year-old Alexander Edward Birmingham and charged him leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and driving with a suspended license with knowledge.

According to the crash investigation by Titusville Police, Birmingham initially stopped, exited the vehicle, approached the bicyclist, but quickly got back into the vehicle and fled the scene.

The search for the suspect lasted nearly a month that included surveillance photos that were released to the public.
