Tucson police have recovered a hooded sweat shirt and backpack believed to belong to the man who fatally stabbed Erick Bridges at an east-side convenience store on May 17.

Detectives ask that anyone who knows the assailant call 911 or 88-CRIME, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman. No new information on the case has been released by police.

Bridges, 22, died May 18 of his wounds.

His attacker was described as a man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt and dark jeans, and was carrying a dark-colored backpack, police said.

BP, which owns Arco AM/PM, 7601 E. Tanque Verde Road, where Bridges was working the graveyard shift when he was mortally wounded, is offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the case.

Donations are being taken at the store for memorial services, said Jamie Ott, AM/PM general manager.

A candlelight vigil celebrating Bridges' life is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Baseball Field No. 2 at Morris K. Udall Regional Park, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road.
