TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson police are looking for a bank robber after the Pima Federal Credit Union on Valencia was held up Monday afternoon.

The suspect fled the scene with cash after presenting a robbery note to the teller.

He didn't show a weapon, but cops think he got away in a silver car.

The robber is a white or Hispanic man, between 20 and 30-years old, 5'7" and 170 pounds with short brown hair and acne scars on his face. 

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


TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson police are investigating a murder on Tucson's north side.  It happened near Fort Lowell and Country Club Roads.  The victim is a 45-year-old man.

The person or people who shot him are still on the run.

If you know anything call 911 or 88-CRIME.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- A female prison staff member was sexually assaulted by an inmate with a homemade weapon during her shift Saturday.

The staffer is a 20-year veteran of the federal bureau of prisons.

In a separate incident, a disturbance at the federal prison led to one staff member sent the hospital, and three others with minor injuries.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- The third suspect in the shooting death of a father and daughter in Arivaca two years ago, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Albert Gaxiola is the only of three suspects not to receive the death penalty.

After the jury couldn't decide, prosecutors left it up to Judge John Leonardo, who handed down the life sentence.

Gaxiola was involved in the home invasion that left 8-year-old Brisenia Flores, and her father Raul, dead.
