on behalf of Robert valentino
Robert Valentino and his wife and his 10 yr old daughter were on the MAX train a couple of days before Christmas on their way to drop off presents at his mothers house.  At the Max stop at Northeast 60th a group of teens got on the train blaring music that was inappropriate with language. Robert asked them politely to turn down the music but instead one of the teens turned it up even louder. Robert tried grabbing the speaker when he was viciously attacked by two of the teens without warning he was hit in his jaw by two of the teens and his jaw was broken in several places. He will have to undergo surgery and needs tooth replacement. The teens are being charged as adults and face various levels of assault charges.  Robert will not be able to eat solid food for a couple of months. We are looking to help him with the medical costs to replace lost teeth and hospital bills.  The beating was captured on camera and a upcoming arraignment is scheduled for early February.  Hopefully justice will be served . 36028620_1546979851839482_r.jpeg
This is Robert and his daughter. She was traumatized from this whole ordeal.  Having to watch your dad get attacked by a group of teens was not easy and she still fears for her father and his safety. Hopefully she will feel comfortable enough to take public transportation again and rebuild her faith in mankind. 36028620_1546980023608975_r.jpeg

I am Raymond Sandoval. I am from Portland Oregon. I am a good friend of Robert Valentino. I have set up this Gofundme Campaign on Robert Valentino's behalf. The funds that get donated will go to his out of pocket cost for medical bills and lost time from work. I have made Roberts the sole beneficiary of this account so all donations go straight to him. Robert is in court this morning with his wife and daughter making sure that justice prevails today. The guilty party will be arraigned today in court. I hope and pray that all of the good people who have donated and sent in well wishes have a blessed year in 2019 and we have no more incidents like this one on the Portland Trimet MAX trains or anywhere else for that matter. once again thank you to all and more updates as we move forward. A big thank you to Doctor Skinner and his team at Hillsboro Dental Excellence. as soon as Robert's jaw is healed he will be looking forward to visiting all of you at your office.

Great news and thank you to all who have donated so far. You’re amazing people Robert could not believe how many of you came to his aid. It literally brought all of us to tears. The great news is Dr Skinner at Hillsboro Dental Excellence heard about the incident and offered to do the dental work that Robert will need to fix his teeth. Miracle after miracle keeps pouring in. There is no way to express to all of you how much this means to Robert. He will be able to smile again with confidence thanks to all of you that supported him. There is more good out there and it is stronger than any bad.
