Last Saturday evening, March 26, Eun Hee Chang was walking home in Elmhurst when a group of three men came up behind her, brutally stabbed her in the back, and stole her purse. In shock, and not realizing she had been stabbed, she ran inside Louie’s Pizzeria for help. Heroically, Louie and his father, Cazim, chased down two of the criminals and were both stabbed as well while holding them down. Police arrived and arrested the two men, but amidst the chaos, Ms. Chang slipped away and went home.
It was only when her landlord saw her bleeding heavily from her back, that she realized she had been stabbed and went to the hospital. She had surgery to treat the stab wound, but afraid of missing work, she left the hospital and reported to her job the very next day.
Ms. Chang works as a home health aide in the Bronx and Brooklyn, physical work that involves lifting and assisting older and disabled people, cooking, and cleaning. Showing incredible strength and humility, she has been working almost constantly since being attacked, resisting any of the attention that has come from this incredible story. Louie and Cazim have rightly received many accolades for their heroic act, and have a very successful Gofundme page to help with their recovery, but Ms. Chang has only very reluctantly sat for one interview to tell her story. https://abc7ny.com/queens-robbery-eun-hee-chang-louies-pizza-louie-suljovic/11694723/
Fortunately, she has agreed to be the recipient of this Gofundme page to assist with her own recovery. Ms. Chang deserves time to rest and recuperate from this horrific attack.
