A horribly random act of violence took place in West Duluth when a man broke into an apartment and viciously stabbed Ben Vandell in his sleep.  This crime has shocked the community, and now a gofundme account has been set up to help with the medical expenses.  Vandell suffered more than a dozen stab wounds, including severe damage to one of his eyes.

WDIO has reported on the story and the suspect Willie Nicholson is in custody.

Let's show our support for this victim and pray for his recovery, both physically and mentally.
