Help for a Valley veteran attacked by robbers

Josef martin is still recovering from what he imagines was about 45 minutes being terrorized in his home.

Fresno County Sheriff's detectives say they are making progress in tracking down these suspects, including the female gunman. Martin recalls waking up early Wednesday morning at gunpoint, before several suspects demanded jewelry and money.

Mr. Martin would never ask for help, but his new found friends noticed his home could use some plumbing work. A tree in his yard needs to be removed and some assistance painting and carpeting could improve his quality of life.

He is humble and grateful for such kindness.

An event at Martin's house will be held on Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. For more info email
