PHOENIX - Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who allegedly punched and killed a homeless man last week.
Sgt. Darren Burch said officers responded to a local AM/PM at 1601 N. 27th Avenue on July 11 around 8:07 p.m. after a 70-year-old man, believed to be homeless, was cursed at and then punched.
The homeless man was standing near the bus stop near 27th Avenue and McDowell before he was punched in the head. The suspect then fled.
The victim was transported to a local hospital where he died due to his injuries.
Police describe the suspect as a white or Hispanic male, 20-25 years old, 5-foot-11 and 165-185 pounds. He has tattoos on the back of both arms. The suspect was seen wearing a baseball cap with a San Francisco Giants logo, a tan colored t-shirt and tan "digital camouflage" pants.
Police are offering a $1,000 reward. Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-W-I-T-N-E-S-S- or toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS.
