PHOENIX -

Police arrested a 30-year-old man after releasing new pictures Friday morning of a suspect who allegedly killed a homeless man.

Joseph Aguilera allegedly walked up to a 70-year-old homeless man at a bus stop in Phoenix, punched him once in the head and than ran away.

"He is just standing there at a bus stop, and this suspect walks up to him, kind of looks him up and down and says something, some profanity and suggests he's going to hurt him, and then hits him with the full impact strike to the head," said Sgt. Darren Burch with Silent Witness.

The homeless man was brought to a hospital where he died.

Police say he still hasn't been identified.

The assault happened at an AM/PM near 27th Avenue and McDowell Road on July 11.

Silent Witness offered a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
