Young boy attacked over backpack

12-year-old attacked, bloodied by man at Austin school bus stop 

We are raising funds for Ms. Andrea Lockhart and her son, Dane Brown, after he was brutally assaulted by a masked adult man in Austin, Texas after the man attempted to steal Dane's backpack.

" 'He said 'give me your backpack or I'll, or I'll punch you', and then I said, 'no', and then he just started punching me," Brown said.

Brown received wounds in four different parts of his face, including one large gouge on his forehand. 

With his mom already at work that morning, Brown first walked his little sister to the bus stop where she was picked up around 6:45 a.m. While waiting for his bus, Brown said he saw his attacker approach from the apartment complex.

He's since been looking out for the attacker whenever riding the bus to and from school."

We're raising funds for the following reasons, and 100% of funds will go to Andrea Lockart for the following:

- to assist with any ongoing medical and legal bills following the attack.

- to help Ms. Andrea and her son relocate, as she no longer feels safe for her family at their current location.

- to help get a new backpack for Dane full of goodies (school related and extra-curricular) for being brave enough to stand up to the attacker/bully

Please feel free to donate to this cause and share far and wide as you see fit.
