Trimet Attack on MAX train portland

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 unbelievably overwhelmed and taken back by all the kindness and compassion, you've all shown me and my family through your beautiful words, posts, phone calls/texts donations that there is still tenderness and caring in people. I really have to thank my good friend Raymond Sandoval for taking the time and starting my gofundme page and keeping people updated. I can never put into words how grateful and Humbled I am to Dr. Geoffrey Skinner and his dental team for offering to replace  my missing teeth with new implants for free just to help make things right. And one thing I do not want to do is to take for granted my wife Jenna Lee Valentino for being my voice when I had none, being my strength, never leaving my side and letting me know it's all going to be alright, you are truly my Rockstar I Love you with everything I am.
