GoFundMe page established for elderly Fullerton beating victim

Jim Fullerton Attack VictimA GoFundMe page has been established for a man who was viciously beaten by a group of six individuals last week.

The 69-year-old was beaten by six juveniles in the 4200 block of Cardwell Avenue (21236) on Wednesday, January 3, as he was preparing to take his wife to the bank.

The six teens attacked the man, robbed him, then ran over him with his own vehicle, crushing his hip.

Shortly thereafter a neighbor found “Jim” on the curb and brought him a blanket, while another individual called 911.

The man was taken to Shock Trauma and underwent surgery for multiple fractures in his pelvic bone, internal bleeding, and multiple contusions. “Jim” will be hospitalized, then in a rehab facility for approximately 6 weeks. It is uncertain when “Jim” will be able to walk again.

Four of the juveniles were arrested earlier this week, and three of them have been charged as adults.

The goal of the newly-created GoFundMe page is to raise $5,000 for “Jim” and his wife.

Police have made four arrests of juveniles as they continue to investigate the armed-carjacking of a 69-year-old victim in Overlea/Fullerton last Wednesday.

At 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 3, officers  responded to the 4200 block of Cardwell Avenue, 21236, for an armed carjacking.

There, police determined that a man was violently attacked by six suspects, forcing him to fall to the ground. The suspects told the victim that they would shoot him and then stole the victim’s car and his belongings. The suspects drove over the man with his own car as they fled the area.

Police received information from a citizen that led officers to the area of Sturbridge Drive and Pickering Drive, 21236. During the subsequent investigation, officers recovered the victim’s car and two other stolen cars (a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban and a 2007 Saturn Vue). Officers were also able to arrest four juveniles for their involvement in this crime.

The victim continues to receive medical treatment at a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.
