Authorities searching for suspects in fatal Phoenix assault, armed robbery

Authorities are asking the public to help local police departments to help them solve two separate instances of a deadly assault and armed robbery.

Bruce Graham, 70, was sitting at a bus stop with a group of what may have been young teens when there was some kind of argument.

It happened at about 5 p.m. on Nov. 7, 2018.  The bus stop is on the west side of 19th Avenue just south of Camelback Road in Phoenix.

“We don’t have an exact number of how many people were in this group,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild. “It’s believed they might have been juveniles.”

Graham was beaten so badly he ended up dying.

Sgt. Rothschild says, “It’s possible that somebody saw the assault occur and didn’t realize he ultimately passed away from it.”

Next: On Jan. 16 at about 5 p.m., two scary-looking characters in hoodies pulled off a heist at a Metro PCS store at 32nd and Roosevelt streets in Phoenix.

“The first suspect came in and pulled out a gun. He pointed it at the employee and racked the slide,” says Rothschild.

While he was doing that, the other suspect reached into the register and took cash then they both ran away.

The terrified employee wasn’t hurt.
