Man guilty but insane in machete attacks

Citizen Staff Writer



Rickey F. Russell, 26, pleaded guilty “except insane” Wednesday to three felony charges in a machete attack at a bus stop on July 7, 2008.

He is to be sentenced March 2, according to court documents.

Tucson police said Russell injured two teenage girls in the attack shortly after 10 p.m. July 7 at a Tucson bus stop. One girl was “severely injured,” said Sgt. Mark Robinson, a spokesman for Tucson police.

Russell was arrested after a failed carjacking and failed armed robbery on July 12 and later linked to the machete attack by investigators.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
