A viral video uploaded by Senai Graden, a fashion intern in D.C., shows her taking a homeless man to get tea, groceries, his prescriptions, and even a hotel room. The sweet young woman expressed her wish to help the homeless man, Alonzo Douglas Hebron.
So, she launched a GoFundMe. People quickly donated to Hebron, raising over $400,000.
Unfortunately, Hebron wasn't just some innocent old man – according to Fox5 D.C., he's a violent criminal with a history of assault and robberies. One of his victims came forward to talk about her horrifying experience with Hebron. There's video evidence of the criminal putting a scarf over the victim's head as she was sleeping on the street, and he repeatedly punched her face and body for several minutes. The incident occurred in June 2020.
"I’m speechless," she said. "I do not understand how a human being can act like this. He’s a sociopath. He does not have a sense of remorse."
The anonymous victim said she woke up at the hospital and couldn't remember what happened the night before. She said that the viral video of Hebron is triggering for her. "I’ve been struggling since then. I’m an alcoholic in recovery," she added. "Last week was my 18-month anniversary and the last two days, I came close, but I didn’t because he’s not worth it."
"I was heartbroken," she recalled after seeing the viral TikTok. "First of all – kudos to the woman who did this. She meant well, and I do applaud her for that. I know it was a lot of work for her to do so, but portraying him as something he just simply isn’t…"
In November 2012, Hebron was sentenced to five years for stabbing a man in the neck with a screwdriver during a fight in Northeast D.C. Hebron was released to a halfway house in June 2023 but escaped and was returned. It's not known when he was released.
The woman he assaulted asked, "Why is he on the street? How many people does he have to hurt before – I’m sorry – he is locked up for good? He will not stop. I don’t know what they’re waiting for."
GoFundMe has informed Fox 6 that the funds initially raised for Hebron are "being held safely" while they "work with the organizer of the campaign."
