A Vietnamese-American man suffered a skull fracture and spine injuries after being robbed and attacked by six men while on his way to work last weekend.
The victim, identified as Vinh Vu, was on his way to his second job at Fisherman’s Wharf when he was attacked from behind by the assailants, according to San Francisco Chronicles. Vu didn’t fight back or resist the assault. The suspects, however, continued to beat him until he becomes unconscious.
SF police responded to the attack at around 10:36 p.m. on Saturday. The unidentified suspects reportedly took his backpack and cellphone. Vu was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
“He suffered traumatic injuries to his head & spinal cord and requires breathing assistance through a ventilator,” said in his GoFundMe page. “He’s currently still in the ICU recovering and has yet to regain feelings to both arms and legs.”
Police have yet to identify any of the suspects behind the attack.
Meanwhile, the crowdfunding campaign for Vu is now at $19,582 of its $50,000 goal.
