On April 4, the suspect responsible for robbing the Circle K at knife point on March 5, was arrested and identified as Sean Patrick Tighe, 43.
On March 5, Tighe entered the Circle K on the 1700 block of West Speedway Boulevard and lingered around the store for nearly 20 minutes before pulling out a knife and demanding money from the store clerk.
He received an undisclosed amount of money before running northbound from the store. No one was injured during this incident.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of local news media, 88-CRIME, and a few proactive citizens, Tighe turned himself in to the Tucson Police Department. Tighe was booked into the Pima County Jail, charged with 1 count of Aggravated Assault and 1 count of Armed Robbery.
