Citizen Staff Writer



Tucson police have released a sketch of a man they suspect stabbed two people on the East Side on March 17.

They said the man should be considered armed.

The sketch is of a man 35 to 45 years old with black hair and brown eyes.

He is described as 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 150 to 160 pounds.

On the day of the attack, he was wearing a black leather Oakland Raiders jacket and jeans with holes and tears in the legs, Sgt. Fabian Pacheco said in a news release.

One of the stabbing victims, a 51-year-old man, was attacked at a bus stop in the 7800 block of East Speedway Boulevard at 5:46 a.m. while he was waiting for a shuttle to his job. He had life-threatening wounds.

The next victim, a 21-year-old man, was stabbed 14 minutes later at 6 a.m. in the 100 block of North Pantano Road, Pacheco said. He was treated at a hospital and released.

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
