Madera community rallies donations for street vendor attacked on the job

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Central Valley came through in a big way for a Madera street vendor who got attacked on the job.

Kat Pena delivered $2,300 to Arturo Felix last night, about two weeks after the attack.

Madera Police say it came from a GoFundMe account she started to let him know there are more than enough good people in the world to make up for the bad ones.

Action News was there a week ago when the suspect surrendered to police.

Officers say 20-year-old Ivan Ruiz was drunk when he attacked Felix because he was upset about the corn he had just bought.

Felix missed several days of work afterward.
