SAFFORD — Safford Police are looking for the person or persons who tagged a small walking bridge.

The bridge is located at 12th Avenue and El Paso Boulevard and the graffiti was discovered Monday.

On one side of the bridge, the graffiti calls on an unidentified person to “kill yourself,” while the other side makes a declaration about the sexuality of Jesus Christ.

In an e-mail to Gila Valley Central, Matthew Hoshal, assistant to the city manager, said, “We are working to clean the graffiti. It should be cleaned very soon.”

Investigation into the incident is ongoing.
