On the evening of Tuesday, April 18th, Carmelino Pable, a 70-year-old man, was walking his dog as usual near 91st and Burleigh Ave. when an African-American male in his early to mid 20s drove up in a white SUV (no plates), exited his vehicle, and repeatedly beat Carmelino over his head and body with a bat. The suspect then drove off. Carmelino suffered numerous injuries, including 20+ stitches on his head.  

*WARNING: Graphic images*


As of right now, police are searching for the suspect. We, as a community, are rallying around our neighbor, Carmelino Pable, and are raising $2,500 in cash reward for any information from the public that will lead to the police arrest of the person responsible for this senseless crime. Let's reach our goal with urgency so that we can prevent this sort of attack from happening to anyone else! The capture of the suspect will bring answers, closure, and emotional healing to all involved. 

Carmelino left his home in the Philippines in hopes of a better life in America. Despite the attack, Carmelino's family, friends, and community are so grateful for his survival, and continue to be respected members of their neighborhood. 

Your donation may not only help solve this crime, but will reinforce the unity in our community!  
Let's walk with Carmelino together. 


*Donations exceeding the $2,500 goal will be donated towards Carmelino's medical expenses.

We are so thankful to hear from Carmelino's dear granddaughter that he is returning to his funny old self! While he continues to heal well for the most part, he is experiencing dizziness when getting out of bed. He will be having a follow-up appointment soon to address this development. The road to emotional and physical recovery will not be easy, but Carmelino and his family are so encouraged and loved on by everyone's kind words and prayers. Thank you for being an important part of the healing process!

Our fund is currently at $3,805 -- we are so close to our goal of $5,000! There are two important things you can do to help us reach our goal for our neighbor's medical expenses:

1. Share this link via Facebook or email with your family and friends! We want, more than anything, to keep the REWARD information circulating! This is the best way to help, and it will only cost you 5 seconds of your time.

2. Do you have a little more than 5 seconds? How about $5? Carmelino and his family greatly appreciate any donations that will help with upcoming medical expenses -- and we're so close!

Thank you all, again, for walking with Carmelino. Though less frequently, I will continue to keep you updated on his progess, our campaign, and any new developments. Blessings!
Carmelino and his family

Great things happened today:

1. Clearance granted from MPD (shout out to Sgt. Gauerke for his help and guidance) to officially announce our $2,500 reward!

2. Did you check out Carmelino's fund? We just crossed the $3,000 mark! The fund isn't even a week old!

However, it HAS been exactly one week since Carmelino's attack. Please continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers. Remember that your kind donations will now go directly towards his medical expenses.

Next stop: make reward public with the press. I'll keep you updated!

Friends! We've reached our first monumental milestone TOGETHER for Carmelino! Funds for the $2,500 criminal reward have been reached!

Today I will be reaching out to the police department to make them aware that there is NOW A REWARD, and will also be working with the news network to officially make this public. I'll continue to keep you all updated! We have a stellar community, families and friends among us!!

Your contributions are still deeply and humbly appreciated. All donations from here on out will go towards Carmelino's ongoing medical expenses as he will understandably require many follow up appointments and procedures. If anyone would like a GoFundMe flyer for his fund with handy tear-off tabs, let me know. These are perfect for posting at work or area businesses!
