Assault suspect sought in possible connection to homicide case

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police ask for the public's help in finding a former assault suspect who might be connected to a possible homicide.

Police said the suspect argued with a bicyclist, 55-year-old William Edwards, near E. Pastime Road and N. Stone Avenue on Nov. 17 before he got out of his car and reportedly punched Edwards in the face several times before fleeing the area, according to a news release.

Edwards was taken to the hospital for chest pain treatment then went home, but returned that evening and later passed away.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man who might live in or often visit the 200 block of E. Pastime in a white Chevrolet Suburban.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
