Police announced Friday afternoon during a news conference that
Mustafa Eraibi, 29, of the 5000 block of Truesdale Ave. was arrested and charged in the robbery and attack of Jon Fogg, who was beaten with a brick during the incident.
Eraibi was charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault, robbery,theft and handgun violations in connection with the crime.
Police said Fogg was walking around 2 a.m. Jan. 14 in the 3400 block of Foster Avenue when he was allegedly attacked by Eraibi. Fogg's car, wallet and laptop were stolen in the attack. Fogg suffered serious injuries in the attack, including skull fractures, broken bones and losing many teeth.
Police appeared to make progress in the investigation earlier this week when they released a photo searching for a person of interest.
Fogg's family has also been grateful for the outpouring of support from the community. The family established a
Go Fund Me website, and have raised around $24,000 to help offset medical and other related expenses in Fogg's recovery.
Fogg started a blog called
Jon's Story to share stories of his recovery.
