Fridley assault victim never saw attackers coming, but he remembers them

FRIDLEY, Minn. (KMSP) -

Yani Singh is recovering from 3 serious stab wounds, and while he works with prosecutors to charge the 4 suspects who allegedly planned the setup, he's more worried about his friend who is still in critical condition, and his own health.

Singh says he never saw his attackers coming, but he clearly recognizes all 4 of the suspects' faces. He helped police identify Marcus Fulz, 20, Kevin Moore, 25, each charged with attempted murder, assault and attempted robbery, and also Leanne Todd, 22, and Tiffani Ivy, 22, each charged with aiding and abetting assault and attempted robbery. 

Fridley police found Singh and his best friend, Anthony Michael McCollum, at 77th Avenue and Main Street around 4:25 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 23. Both men had been stabbed multiple times and savagely beaten nearby. McCollum is still on a ventilator at the hospital after suffering 8 stab wounds and a punctured lung.

According to the charges, Todd and Ivy lured the two victims to Fultz and Moore by offering them a ride home from Two Stooges bar after closing time. Fultz and Moore allegedly stabbed McCollum and Singh multiple times. Both required emergency surgery and both remain in critical condition. The women said the plan was to rob McCollum and Singh, but they said they had no idea the victims would be stabbed.

"I told them I had nothing, and he had a crazy look on his face, he just said, 'so, you have nothing?" Singh recalled of his attacker. 

How you can help

Donations to help the two ambush victims cover the cost of their medical treatment can be made at any Wells Fargo branch by depositing funds into the Yani and Anthony Benefit fund.
