Tucson police have recovered a hooded sweatshirt and backpack believed to belong to the man who stabbed Erick Bridges at an eastside convenience store Friday.
Detectives ask that anyone who knows the assailant to 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 Saturday at University of Arizona Medical Center where he underwent surgery for wounds to his aorta and lung, said his sister, Jennifer Speese, in an interview Monday.
Bridges’ 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 sweatshirt, 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.
