An online fundraiser has been started for a rural Good Thunder man who was viciously attacked with a hammer last week.
Arnold “Arnie” Lillo is “doing amazing,” according to his friend Robin Block, who set up the Go Fund Me page for the 83-year-old victim. The page says a meal train has been established for Lillo, and he’ll meet with a neurosurgeon soon.
On Nov 10, Lillo was attacked from behind and hit in the head with the hammer. Brandon Lee McMurtrey, 34, has been charged with felony counts of 1st-degree assault, 1st-degree robbery, and 2nd-degree assault in connection with the incident. More charges are expected to follow.
To date, the online campaign has raised more than $5,875.
