Sister of early-morning stab victim speaks to Nine On Your Side

CREATED May 17, 2013

Reporter: Liz Kotalik

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The story has been everywhere.

A gas station clerk senselessly stabbed twice in the heart while working at the A-M/P-M on Tanque Verde and Wrightstown early this morning.

The assaulter is still no where to be found.

 

"My mom called me and said, Logan. You might want to sit down."

Logan Bridges is the victim's sister.

He is 22-year-old Erick Bridges, who had been working at the gas station for about six months, Logan says.

She says her brother played baseball, is engaged, is about to begin taking college classes, and just is a genuinely good guy.

"My brother's the type of kid that would give the shirt off his back to help somebody."

The last time she saw him was on her birthday just five days ago.

"We had kind of been fighting, like a week before or so, and he told me he loved me no matter what."

 

Words she is keeping close to her today.
 
Police say it does not look like the man who attacked Bridges tried robbing the store.
 
If anyone has any tips on this case, you are urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
 
The owner and manager of the A-M/P-M have set up an account with Chase Bank for anyone who wishes to donate to Erick's family. The account is under the manager Jamie D. Ott's name.
 
The store is also offering a $2,000 reward for anyone with any information leading up to an arrest in this case.
 
Erick is still in critical condition.
