A GoFundMe page has been established by the family of Larry Watczak, the 70 year-old Park Point resident who was the victim of a vicious assault and remains in a coma.

According to their page:

On the evening of Wednesday, January 2, Larry was home resting on his sofa when a man walked through his front door and hit him in the head with a blunt force object and stole the money from his pocket along with a flip phone and tablet. Larry was able to find an old phone and put enough charge on it to call 911. Upon admittance to the ER, he had a seizure and ended up in emergency brain surgery due to a brain bleed. He has not regained consciousness since this surgery and the doctors are baffled. We greatly appreciate any donations you may be able to give to help with his incurring medical expenses.

The family has set a goal of $10,000 to help with expenses. Click the link below for more information and to donate.

The Duluth Police Department has announced that a suspect related to this assault has been arrested.
