WILMINGTON, Delaware (KFOR/Storyful) – Surveillance video inside a jewelry store in Wilmington, Delaware shows the store owner being pistol whipped and beaten in the head with a hammer, leaving the 68-year-old owner bloodied and disoriented, while the suspect allegedly helped himself to jewelry.
The man’s son, Steve Suh, says of his Korean-American father, on a GoFundMe campaign, “He is relearning how to do the most basic things like walk, read, and talk. His ‘American Dream’ has come to a crashing halt.”
When the suspect finally leaves, the owner gets up and walks around, but appears confused and in shock.
Wilmington Police arrested 39-year old Calvin Ushery for the September 18th crime.
Ushery is charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, first degree robbery, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, and criminal mischief.
“He was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 11 and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on $130,500 cash-only bail,” according to police.
Suh estimates the stolen jewelry was worth about $100,000, on top of mounting medical bills.
As of the time of this post, Suh had raised more than $78,000 of his $150,000 GoFundMe goal, where Suh wrote, “I would like to personally thank everyone for not only your contribution but also your kind words. I read them to my dad as I sit beside him.”
