The Fresno Police Officers Association says someone is posing as the group online asking for donations for Officer Eloy Escareno.

The association says they do do not ask for donations from the public - so any website that says otherwise is false.
FAKE DONATION REQUESTS: @FresnoPolice union says there are phony donation requests going around to help injured officer Eloy Escareno.— Corin Hoggard (@corinhoggard) October 30, 2018

Officer Escareno is responsive but sedated.
His wife Maribel suffered major head trauma and is heavily sedated.
Both are in the intensive care unit.
The FPOA says their only request is prayers for a speedy and full recovery of the Escareno family.
