South Side stabber arrested

More gore on the South Side, with a woman and her 13-year-old daughter stabbed and slashed in the arms and neck at the trailer park where they lived.

They survived, but the person arrested for the attack, 30-year-old Yesenia Sosa, is charged with attempted murder, among other things.

The stabbings occurred about 12:30 p.m. in the 3500 block of East Alvord Road, near South Palo Verde Road.

The woman who was stabbed may have known the suspect, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

They were “somewhat acquainted,” Barkman said. But the victim “did not know her that well.” Read story: www.azstarnet.com/sn/hourlyupdate/294409.php

Nice acquaintance.

Some still say the South Side is no more dangerous than other areas around town.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
