An account has been set up to accept donations for a victim of a vicious Riverwalk attack.

Wesley Spires, 27, and Ashley Solesbee, 25, both of South Carolina, were robbed and attacked with a metal bat or pipe while sitting on a bench near the former Fort Discovery late Friday. Both were treated for facial injuries. Spires was admitted to University Hospital in critical condition after driving himself and Solesbee to the hospital following the attack.

Police continue to search for the assailants.

A Wesley Spires Donation Fund has been set up at Georgia Bank and Trust and Southeastern Bank and Trust.
