Our friend Mike Elias was attacked with a hatchet this past Saturday night in Portland, Oregon. Mike is a former professional aggressive inline skater, musician in the country band “Denver” and owner of the leather goods company, “Ship John”. After the attack he was rushed to the hospital and put into the ICU. He suffered a fractured skull and had to undergo several surguries.
Mike was heading to his car after Ship John was hosting a music Performance at their store. He was attacked by two men on bicycles, who attempted to rob him, outside the store. According to the Ship John Instagram page, Mike has been released from ICU and is heading home to his family.
A GoFundMe has been setup to help Mike with the costs he will incur from this horrible incident.
