Canton man recovering from skull fractures after attack, robbery

The family of a Canton man said Tuesday that he is beginning to recover from a fractured skull and other injuries suffered during a robbery last week in which an assailant took his car and laptop. The victim, Jonathan Fogg, is a Baltimore Sun editor.

His mother said police continue to search for the silver 2009 Toyota Prius taken from Fogg in the 3400 block of Foster Avenue in Canton on Jan. 14.

Fogg, who works on The Sun's sports desk, has left the hospital but faces a lengthy recovery, said his mother, Jane Fogg of Canton, N.J.

"It's the head injuries that you always worry about," she said. "They're nothing to be taken lightly."

Jonathan Fogg, 30, was returning home from work at about 1:40 a.m. Jan. 14 when he was attacked, police said. The assailant struck Fogg in the head with a brick. His injuries include skull fractures, gashes on his head, missing and damaged teeth and broken fingers.

He is suffering headaches, his mother said.

Fogg has set up a personal website, on which he wrote that he has been "overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from family, friends, acquaintances and complete strangers."

The site links to a fundraising page set up by his sister to supplement his insurance. Family members said they have raised $20,000.

Jane Fogg said she hopes police will catch her son's attacker. On his site, Jonathan Fogg asked anybody with information to call police. His car's license plate number is 5ES T20.

Police offered no updates in the case Tuesday.
