Yani Singh is improving, but Anthony McCollum's home remains empty and quiet while his family stays with him around the clock at HCMC. He is listed in critical condition, and with a punctured lung, he needs to be on a breathing machine. Longtime neighbor Howard Koivu told Fox 9 News that McCollum's uncle stopped by and shared a grim update.

"He's got tubes going down him. He's got a collapsed lung from a stab wound -- stabbed 8 times, from what they told me," he said. "He's just not doing good, and they're hoping for the best."

Early Saturday morning, McCollum and Singh were at the Two Stooges bar in Fridley. After closing, Leanne Todd and Tiffany Ivy allegedly asked the two to give them a ride to University Avenue and Tiffany Street just a few minutes away; however, police say that when they arrived, Kevin Moore and Marcus Fultz ambushed the pair of 21-year-olds and stabbed them multiple times in what investigators see as a set-up.

After regaining consciousness at Unity Hospital, Sing was able to help police identify the attackers -- and the four suspects are expected to be charged on Tuesday morning. Fox 9 News took a look into their backgrounds in Minnesota and found some minor offenses -- but Moore is a convicted felon for his role in a 2010 robbery. Todd's record shows a misdemeanor drug conviction, and both women have clean records otherwise.

Fox 9 News also paid a visit to the addresses police attributed to the suspects, but only someone at Todd's place answered. That person explained that they were surprised by the claims against her, adding that "it's nothing like something she would do."

Meanwhile, McCollum's friends say he was working multiple jobs to support his family. Singh is a painter, and both are graduates of Columbia Heights High School. Friends are now planning a fundraiser to help with their medical expenses, and donations to the Anthony and Yani Benefit Fund can be made at any Wells Fargo bank.
