Fund set up to help elderly attack victims

November 6, 2003

Albany -- A fund is now set up to help the elderly Albany couple brutally beaten in their home this week. 78 year old Carl Sheffield and his 76 year old wife Gladys were beaten and robbed Monday at their home on West Tift Avenue by two men who forced their way in.

The attacks left the Sheffields with big medical bills. After our story on them Wednesday night, dozens of you responded wanting to help them.

Chris McNeese said "I found it heartbreaking. To have two elderly like that in Albany. To have people bust in their door, beat them up and rob them of a pack of cigarettes, nothing more than that. Was watching the news last night with a group of friends, and immediate response was what can I do to help those people."

An account has been set up if you would like to help the Sheffields.

You can send donations to the First National Bank of South Georgia 

 1607 Hiway 19 South

Albany Georgia 31708-71748.

Albany police still haven't caught the men who attacked them.
