On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, during the early hours of the morning, Jon Fogg was walking to his residence from where he parked his car after working his job at The Baltimore Sun. During this walk, he was brutally attacked by a man wielding a brick. Jon was robbed of his wallet, laptop, and car keys. The attacker then stole Jon's car, a Toyota Prius, that still had many of his gifts and gift cards from Christmas in it. The attacker also used Jon's credit card to make fraudulent purchases.
Worse than the loss of his possessions, Jon suffers many physical injuries. He has 6 skull fractures, broken bones in both hands (which are splinted), and he had about 8 teeth knocked out completely. He was discharged from the hospital after 2 days and is currently in a lot of pain. The assailant has not been captured and there have been no leads on the vehicle.
The road to recovery will be a long one for Jon, and that is why we are creating this page for him. He will need a lot of medical attention, and because he has both arms in splints, he will not be able to work for some time. If anyone would like to donate to help Jon recover, it would be greatly appreciated. We placed $1000 as our original goal, because we honestly don't know what to expect, but NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL.
Please feel free to contact us (Jon's family) with any questions.
