PHOENIX — Authorities say a utility worker has been shot during a mugging
in a south Phoenix alley.
Phoenix police say the Century Link employee was driving in an alley about 1
p.m. Tuesday when he was approached by an armed bicyclist wearing a hoodie who
demanded the man’s wallet.
Authorities say the suspect on the bike shot the worker once in the shoulder as
he handed over his wallet.
The gunman then fled the scene.
The victim called police as he drove to a Phoenix hospital and was able to
describe the shooter.
Authorities say a man suspected of being the shooter has been arrested, but his
name hasn’t been released yet.
The wounded worker is expected to recover.
