Last week, a Brooklyn musician lost his eye after he was attacked by a hammer-wielding maniac in Bed-Stuy. Dru Barnes, a member of the band Jogyo, was walking home around 10 a.m. last Thursday when a man with a hammer came from behind and attacked him, striking him several times in the head. You can see video of the suspect below.

Barnes, who had gotten lost while walking home that morning, had the optic nerve in his left eye completely severed. His friend Gerrit Vooren has set up a Facebook page to bring attention to the attack and help pay for the costs of the multiple surgeries Barnes has ahead of him. “I spoke to him and he said, ‘You know what, I’m going to make sense of this, I’m going to make this right, I’m going to make this work for my life. I’m going to make this a good thing versus a bad thing,” Vooren told CBS.

Anyone with information in regards to this assault is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website.
