Fox4: Local musician attacked, robbed in West Plaza gets outpouring support from community
Joshua Merello said he was parked on 44th Terrace near the busy intersection of Holly and Roanoke in West Plaza Saturday morning after a friend's wedding rehearsal party. He was sitting in his car about to drive home when he said two men in their 30s approached his car.
"I honestly thought I was going to die," Merello said.
He said the two men opened his driver and passenger doors and attacked him.
"Beat me up, threw me on the ground, drove off that way, and the only witness was parked up the street," Merello said.
Merello said a good Samaritan ran to help him, and called police. He said his bruises will heal, but his car, phone, and instruments, and equipment are gone.
He is a local musician that plays shows around town, teaches kids about music, and provides music therapy for people with Alzheimer's.
His friends have set up a GO-Fund-Me effort.
No word on suspects in his assault.
