A fundraising page was set up for the victim of the stabbing at Circle K store on McBean Parkway at Decoro Drive on Tuesday to help pay for the clerk to get back on his feet.
The page was started by Jennifer Crawford, ex-wife of the victim who also describes herself as a close friend.
“He’s really become a staple at that gas station,” Crawford said.
“He’s an honest person, a lot of people took to him. He’s made a difference in people’s lives by just being a gas station attendant.”
According to Crawford, the victim was a former marine veteran who left his job to help her and take care of their 14-year-old son.
The victim was originally admitted into Henry Mayo in critical condition but is now at home resting, according to Crawford.
The funds for the victim is being raised through a YouCaring page and was started on Friday afternoon.
